COMMEMORATING THE 
NINETIETH YEAR OF 



LAKE FOREST COLLEGE 




PRESENTED BY THE STUDENT BODY OF LAKE FOREST COLLEGE 

LAKE FOREST, ILLINOIS 



T, 



f^ryry 






This year the 1947 Forester staff proudly dedicates its yearbook 
to our President, Dr. Ernest E. Johnson. Dr. Johnson has been a 
friend to each and every student on campus, and it seems only 
fitting that the first yearbook dedication in the history of our 
college should be made to him. It also gives us special pleasure 
to make this dedication to Dr. Johnson for this yearbook celebrates 
the culminating point of the ninetieth anniversary of Lake Forest 
College. Dr. Johnson stands out as a symbol to the college and to 
the students, representing that same quality of leadership and 
initiative which has made possible these ninety years of history 
and at the same time representing the future — for it is through 
just such leaders as he that Lake Forest will continue its progress 
just as ably as in the past. Dr. Johnson is very well known by 
everyone on the campus and although the enrollment has in- 
creased considerably, everyone still finds a cheerful "hello" await- 
ing him from our president and with i&vf exceptions his name is 
remembered. His home and office are always open to the student 
who wishes special conferences or informal visits with him. Very 
few of us will ever be able to forget the welcome we have received 
at the Johnson home and in faculty circles by both Dr. and Mrs. 
Johnson. It is, therefore, very appropriate that this yearbook 
which gives the complete picture of Lake Forest students and their 
activities for the year should be dedicated to our president, for he 
is the one who has taken such an active interest in what we have 
done and even more important an interest in each of us personally. 
We have fully realized this interest which he has displayed in us, 
and we are proud to dedicate our yearbook to this outstanding 
student leader. It is with great pride, then, that we pay tribute to 
Dr. Johnson in this very small way by dedicating our 1947 
Forester to him.

LAKE FOREST

"yls stand thy brave old trees about thee, strong as the lake's 
fierce waves in storm. So stand thy children to defend thee. . ." 



1857 - 1947 




T is with great pride that the 

■ I 1947 Forester celebrates the 
I I 90th year of the history of 

■ * Lake Forest College. Here, 
we, the present Lake Foresters 

may look at our college in the year 1947 
and see the tremendous service it has 
done since 1857. As we review this 
history and recall the many scenes of 
the college's past, we feel that Lake 
Forest spirit surge within us once 
again more strongly than ever and we 
understand perhaps even better the 
real meaning of the words of our Alma 
Mater — "for God, Lake Forest, vic- 
tory!" For it was over ninety years ago 
that the first plans were laid for the 
college, and today we know that all the 
work and effort directed toward the 
goal of a Lake Forest College has 
resulted in victory. 



We present here then in these few 
opening pages in the year 1947 the 
past years depicting the pioneering and 
struggling which have given us our 
college as we know it today. It was in 
1855 that some outstanding citizens of 
Chicago and the vicinity conceived the 
idea of creating a new residential 
suburb and establishing in it an educa- 
tional institution that would be near 
the city and yet in a quiet environment. 
From this plan arose the Lake Forest 
Association which purchased 50,000 
acres of land of which one-half was to 
be used for a university campus. A 
Mr. Sylvester Lind offered 100,000 to 
the association in 1856 if they would 
raise a like amount. 




The first few Lake Forest students 
are called away to the Civil War. 



By February 13, 1857, the university was approved by 
legislature under the title of Lind University with its 
purposes outlined as follows: "To promote the general 
interest of education, to qualify students to engage in 
learned professions, and to discharge honorably and 
usefully the various duties of life." 

Lake Forest's natural beauty was early used as a 
drawing card as shown by this early description which 
was circulated to draw people to the newly-founded 
town — "Lake Forest is finely located on the bluffs of 
Lake Michigan, twenty-seven miles north of Chicago. 
Its sylvan features, system of ravines and lake front 
give it real natural beauty which has been so far 
developed by landscape gardening as to make the place 
one of the most charming suburban towns of the north- 
west. It is a town of beautiful estates and Christian 
homes. Quietude and culture are eminently its char- 
acteristics, affording advantages and lending those 
finer influences desirable." 

Instruction was begun in 1859 in an academy 
building, but the university led a crippled existence until about 1868 when the 
financial panics had passed. An act of legislature changed the name from Lind 
University to Lake Forest University in 1865. The college had a temporary start 
in 1861 with a class of four under Cornelius E. Dickinson, but the Civil War called 
away most of the likely candidates for college. A medical department was begun 
in Chicago which for a time was included as a part of Lake Forest University. 
Reverend William A. Ferry bequeathed funds in 1868 for the establishment of a 
seminary for young ladies. A building was erected and land sold to cover costs. 
In the catalogue of 1872 the problem of food in the dormitory is revealed and the 
solution which had evidently been reached for it — "Along with suitable exercise, 
a well-furnished table is as necessary to the vigorous health of young ladies in 
school as at home. With a proper regard to this matter, we feel sure that sensible 
mothers will see good reasons for not sending articles of food to their daughters 
while here." 

The first Stentor was issued in 1857. It consisted of thirty-two pages containing 
news of the college, Ferry Hall, Academy, and Chicago professional schools. The 
Stentor cou{\rm.Qd^ down through the ages and its existence was only threatened once 
in 1892 when intense rivalry between the college's two literary societies resulted in 
the production of another paper — The Red and Black. At this time enrollment was 
actually too small for even one paper and competition reached its highest peak. 
One writer for The Red and Black pawned his overcoat to meet the week's expenses. 
Finally the two papers reached an agreement and emerged again into one as the 
Stentor which is still in existence today. 

In approximately 1871 a hotel was erected which was donated to Lake Forest 
University after five years. With this building, Mrs. C. D. Farwell founded a co- 
educational school in 1876 which matriculated eight men and four women — a ratio 
of two to one which has been deliberately preserved down to this day. It was 
through her efforts that the college came to be a coeducational institution. In 1877 
the college building was destroyed but classes continued in the old hotel. With 
improved financial conditions a new building was erected in 1878 consisting of 



10 




CoUege Hall 1878 



five Stories containing the chapel, 
library, and dormitory accommoda- 
tions — this building was College Hall 
and the first of the many buildings still 
left standing on the campus today. 
The catalogue at this time reveals the 
four departments of study open to 
students. These were the Scientific, 
Ladies' Academic, Classical, and Pre- 
paratory. 

After the erection of College Hall, 
other building continued on a grand 
scale. 1879 saw the erection of boarding 
hall or the "Old Commons". Academy Hall had burned and a new building was 
put up on the main campus. This was accomplished through the work of Reverend 
Daniel S. Gregory who had assumed the presidency in 1878, and it was also under 
him that the tradition of a close and personal relation between the president and 
every student which has persisted down to the present time was instigated. 

Under the presidency of William C. Roberts in 1887 a further effort to realize 
the university idea was attempted. Affiliations were made with the Rush Medical 
School, the Northwestern and Chicago Colleges of Dental Surgery and the Chicago 
College of Law. These relations were maintained until 1902 when the trustees 
decided to concern themselves only with the three branches of the university — the 
Academy, Ferry Hall, and the College. 

By 1889 and 1891 the William Bross and Jacob Beidler residences were built. 
The Henry C. Durand Institute and the gymnasium went up in 1890. In 1892 the 
academy had left the college campus and 
was occupying its own buildings further 
south. Therefore, in 1897 the old academy 
building was rebuilt for college use and 
became North Hall, a men's dormitory. 
In the same year Lois Durand Hall was 
secured for college women. Alice Home 
Hospital was erected in 1898 as a gift of 
Mrs. Henry Clay Durand and as a 
memorial to her sister, but it was not 
until 1944 that it was first used as a girls' 
dormitory by the college. The following 
year, 1899, the Arthur Somerville Reid 
Library was donated by Mrs. S. S. Reid. 

The problem of heat is not new to our day for there is a story of some boys 
who remained at school for the Christmas holidays in 1891 and found after everyone 
had left that there had been no provision made for any heat for them. Conse- 
quently, they were all forced to stay in one room of College Hall and try to keep 
warm. 

In the catalogue of 1892 two courses of study are revealed as being offered — ■ 
the Classical and the Latin-Scientific. Two outstanding organizations included 
the Young Men's Christian Association and the Athletic Association. Prizes were 
awarded annually for oratory, essays, and declamation. The College offered 
degrees of Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Arts, Master of Science, Bachelor 




Lois Durand Hall— 1897

of Arts, and Bachelor of Science. Here again the emphasis placed upon the indi- 
vidual attention afforded each student was stressed. 

A curriculum revision came about in 1893 which resulted in the subjects being 
placed in ten groups and work offered on a two-semester basis. The use of major 
and minor requirements also was set up for the first time and the rule passed that 
each graduate would receive a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Our first yearbook was published in 1892. The students were very enthusiastic 
for its success and the city departments of law, medicine, and dentistry welcomed 
the enterprise as a means of bringing together all of the departments and introduc- 
ing a real university spirit. Since then, there 
has been a yearbook published almost every 
year with only a few occasional exceptions. 
In 1903 the trustees decided to give up 
the university idea and concentrate solely 
on a college at Lake Forest. The name 
University is in the charter and must 
remain there, but stress is laid on the 
character of the institution as a college and 
as such is separated from the Academy and 
Ferry Hall. 

1905 marked the beginning of what is 
now one of our yearly activities. The tradi- 
tional junior bench ceremony began with 
the presentation of two wooden benches to 
the school by that year's graduating class. 
These wooden benches were later replaced 
by the stone benches which are now standing south of College Hall and which are 
the scene of the junior bench ceremony each year. Also in 1905 began a custom 
which was practiced for a long time and later discontinued. The seniors took matters 
into their own hands in March 1905 by marching into the chapel services wearing 
caps and gowns. They announced their intention that thereafter they would wear 
them at Vespers on Sunday and at daily chapels. These two incidents are only a 
portion of the history behind many of the Lake Forest traditions, and in the old 
annuals and papers are found one amusing incident after another of early college 
life. For example, in one place the lowly status of the 
college freshman is seen in the treatment given them. 
They were always the source of fun for the upper class- 
men and many of them had their heads doused in the 
pump that stood in front of College Hall. When the 
pump was removed the scene was changed to the pond 
west of the gymnasium. The freshmen were constantly 
warned of their lowly place in life and the consequences 
resulting if they outstepped that place. 

1906 marked the erection of the final building on 
campus down to the present time. Mrs. Timothy Black- 
stone donated funds for the erection of Blackstone and 
Harlan Halls; Calvin Durand for Calvin Durand 
Commons; and Mr. Andrew Carnegie for Carnegie 
Science Hall. . , . j

By this time many schools were co-educational as was essays, and declamation.

boys in 1891.

Lake Forest and apparently the woman coed was not very well thought of in many 
places. President Harlan's statement in 1906 reveals the degrading influences 
coeds were apparently having in other schools, but he shows that this is not true 
at Lake Forest: "At Lake Forest, we haven't any specimen of that awful creature 
called the 'coed' who is a very poor, unattractive, hoydenish imitation of the 
man student — instead we are blessed by the presence of a group of delightfully 
feminine women". 

Since the early 1900's Lake Forest has continued to grow and expand and has 
increased its prestige in every phase of its development. It has become a member 
of the athletic association, has increased its music and art departments as well as 
promoting larger departments in other fields. 

Lake Forest has attracted more students each year, but with the outbreak of 
World War I a decline was noticed for the first time. However, after the Armistice 
and the return of veterans Lake Forest was once more able to continue in its 
expansion and in 1942 it was necessary to take over the old nurses' home as a new 
girls' dormitory. 

In that same year Lake Forest was again influenced by another war and by the 

end of the school year, 1942-1943, many men had left 
to join the armed forces. It was a sad experience in the 
history of the college as the young men left their studies 
to fight for their country. 

The next year a difi^erent school was found by those 
who returned for the ASTP had installed a unit and had 
taken over the fraternity houses and North Hall for 
their quarters. The sound of marching and drilling 
now echoed over the campus and the students soon 
became accustomed to the presence of servicemen 
pervading the school atmosphere. 

Again, the following year, 1944-1945, more changes 
were in store for Lake Forest. The ASTP had left the 
campus and a huge enrollment of women filled the 
college. Alice Home Hospital was taken over for a 
girls' dormitory, as well as North Hall. Only Harlan 
Hall was open to men and Blackstone was closed 
entirely. 
Life functioned in the usual way although social 
activities were seriously impeded. Service men were imported from nearby camps 
for social functions and frequent entertainments were given by the girls for their 
benefit. This situation continued throughout the year 1944-1945 and on into 1946. 
The fraternities were closed during this period and many responsible positions 
were relegated to the women. 

Finally the war was over and gradually the veterans began coming back to school. 
At the semester in 1945-1946 a large number returned and social and other ac- 
tivities once more took on a pre-war look. Progress was started on the reorganiza- 
tion of the fraternities and many other campus traditions which had been impos- 
sible during the war years were revived. 

During the past summer two new men's dormitories were constructed and houses 
were furnished for married couples in Farwell Field. The fall of 1946 saw an even 
greater return of veterans so that the day school enrollment was boosted to over 
six hundred. Lake Forest's tradition of men and women ratio was once more on 




Freshman orientation by the upper- 
classmen.

its way to being upheld. The return of a football team was welcomed, and Lake 
Forest was once more able to join in athletic conferences in football, basketball, and 
baseball. 

Greater facilities were needed for the increased enrollment and the coffee shop 
was doubled in size and a dining room in Lois Hall for women was opened. 

Through this surge of enlargement, the campus beautiful has remained the 
same friendly and warm place that it has been noted for ever since its founding. 

As we look back on the glorious history of our college here on our ninetieth 
anniversary, it is hard to believe that this progress has all taken place in what is 
actually such a short space of time. Lake Forest has successfully weathered three 
wartime crises and each time has come through a little stronger and better than 
before. As we look aroun dus and see the many great opportunities which are here 
waiting for us, many are already looking toward the future and visualizing an 
even better college. Numerous plans have been made for more building and ex- 
pansion and it will be with great pride that we, the present students, watch this 
growth in the years to come.

DMINISTRATION AND 




ACULTY 



ADMINISTRATION 




RIENDLINESS has ever since 
I the founding of Lake Forest been 
j the word which most truly typifies 
the relationship between the stu- 
dents and faculty on the campus. 
Each faculty and administration member 
takes an individual interest in every student, 
and the students themselves find it easy to 
know their professors and advisors quite 
personally. Whether in the coffee shop or 
any other place on campus, students and 
faculty mix easily. 

From a faculty of one, Lake Forest has 
increased its staff so that now there are forty- 
eight members on this year's faculty. The 
curriculum has been enlarged and the courses 
formerly offered have been expanded. It 
seems hard to believe that this great an 
increase could have been made in so short 
a time. 

Many of us do not know too well who each 
faculty and administrative member is and 
what his specific jobs are on the campus. 
We pause here, then, to give time to each of 



these members that we may know them even 
better and know more about them than we do 
from our classes and informal conversations 
with them. 

The faculty is easily divided into four di- 
visions — the Division of Language, Literature 
and Fine Arts, Division of Social Sciences, 
Division of Philosophy, Religion and Educa- 
tion, Division of Physical and Natural Sciences, 
and the Department of Physical Education. 
Each of these divisions and their members will 
be outlined separately to give a better picture 
of each faculty and administrative member 
and his duties. 

Under the classification of administration 
we have first our president. Dr. Johnson, who 
came to Lake Forest from the University of 
Denver as a professor of economics and was 
head of that department here. He received his 
degrees at Colorado College, University of 
Denver, University of Chicago and North- 
western. Dr. Johnson has written several 
articles and book reviews which have been 
printed and serves on many educational 
committees and councils in the state. We owe a 



27 



great deal to our president for the work he has 
done in the past to make Lake Forest a better 
college. 

Dean of the college and head of the depart- 
ment of English is Dean McPheeters. The Dean 
also serves on the administration and cur- 
riculum committees. He taught before at 
Wesleyan University and Lawrence. For the 
"Dictionary of American Biography" he wrote 
Rujus King. Dean McPheeters is a Phi Beta 
Kappa and attended DePauw University, 
University of Indiana, Boston University, 
Harvard, University of Chicago, and Cam- 
bridge University. 

Dean of Women and associate professor of 
education at Lake Forest since 1944 is Miss 
Kathryn Klink. Miss Klink comes from 
Bucyrus, Ohio, and went to school at Heidel- 
berg College, Tiffin, Ohio, and Syracuse Uni- 
versity, Syracuse, New York. At Kent State 
University and Arizona State College, she had 
practical experience in the duties of a dean of 
women. 1943 to 1944 she worked as director of 
USO Club and director of women's activities. 

The man who is responsible for most of us 
being here at Lake Forest and who is so well 
known to all of us is Mr. Robert Amaden, 
Director of Admissions. Mr. Amaden came 
here from Stevens College where he was ad- 
missions counselor. He is married and has 
three children, Sally, Buddy, and Billy. His 
hobbies include all sports and at one time he 
was Inter-Collegiate Doubles Champion in 
table tennis. 

Miss Marie Meloy, Registrar, is another very 
familiar figure and she is constantly swamped 
with questions and problems about various 
courses. She has been here at Lake Forest for 
many years and formerly held the position of 
Director of Admissions and was also secretary 
to the faculty for several years. Miss Meloy 
attended Monmouth and did social work in 
Adrian, Michigan, before coming here. 

Business Manager of Lake Forest is Ellis 
C. Halverson, who takes over an infinite 
number of jobs on the campus. Mr. Halverson 
received his education at the University of 
Wisconsin and Northwestern University. Be- 
fore coming to Lake Forest he worked at the 
Milwaukee Vocational School and did public 



accounting work. Besides his job as Business 
Manager, Mr. Halverson also finds time to take 
on the duties of assistant secretary of the 
Board of Trustees. 

A former graduate of Lake Forest is Miss 
Martha Biggs, who also attended the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin. Miss Biggs is head 
librarian for the college and has given much 
time and effort to make our library a better 
one each year. Formerly from Manden, North 
Dakota, she also worked at Bradley University, 
Peoria, Illinois. Her hobbies include traveling, 
dress designing and handwork. 

Director of the Johns-Manville Program is 
Miss Oma Bishop from Washington. Miss 
Bishop attended the University of Iowa, and 
worked at Albany College. She has also had 
considerable experience in business and at one 
time was a cost accountant with Johns- 
Manville. Her hobby is traveling as shown by 
the fact that she has visited Cuba, Mexico, 
Columbia, Canada and Panama, and has 
traveled all over the United States. 

A member of the administrative staff for 
twenty-one years is Mrs. Anna Smith, our 
Director of Dining Rooms. Mrs. Smith was 
originally from Geneva, New York, and 
formerly worked at Cornell University in- 
firmary. Her hobbies include sewing, knitting, 
dogs, and music. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Luer is director of all 
dormitories and the head resident at Patterson 
Lodge. Mrs. Luer's home is in Alton, Illinois, 
and she has three children. She attended 
DePauw University and took graduate 
work at Northwestern. Before coming to Lake 
Forest, she was director of the Illinois Junior 
School for Boys, and girls' supervisor at Wayne 
College Training School, Detroit, Michigan. 

The person to whom we take our many 
ailments for treatment is Mrs. Hartzo, Resi- 
dent Nurse. She attended Jefferson Hospital 
School of Nursing, worked in Washington Lee 
University infirmary, and has done con- 
siderable private duty in nursing. Her husband. 
Dr. Hartzo, also serves on the faculty. They 
have two daughters, Ann and Margaret. 

New on the campus this year is Mr. Blakes- 
lee, who holds the all-important position of 
Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds 



28 



as well as being Assistant Purchasing Agent. 
Mr. Blakeslee assumed these duties at Lake 
Forest after having been in the Navy for four 
years and after holding various positions in 
other places. His hobbies are hunting and 
other outdoor sports. 

The first division under consideration is the 
Division of Language, Literature, and Fine 
Arts of which Dr. R. B. Williams is chairman. 
Dr. Williams is also Director of the Summer 
Session. He attended schools in both Mexico 
and Spain and taught at one time at the Uni- 
versity of Iowa. Among his many writings and 
contributions to various language reviews is 
"The Staging of Plays in Spain Before 1550". 

Assistant professor in modern languages is 
Dr. Ashton, who came to this campus a year 
ago after having taught at the University of 
Illinois, Missouri Valley College, and Uni- 
versity of Kansas City. During the war she 
worked a year for the Office of Censorship in 
San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her hobby is traveling 
and Dr. Ashton has conducted parties through 
Europe five summers and has spent one sum- 
mer traveling through Mexico. 

The third instructor in foreign languages is 
Miss Ursula Thomas. Miss Thomas comes from 
Clear Lake, Iowa, and attended the University 
of Iowa. She taught high school and college 
foreign languages in previous years. 

Dr. Charles Yount, associate professor of 
English, is also secretary to the faculty, ad- 
visor for veterans, and advisor for the Forester 
and Tusitala. He attended 
DePauw, Harvard Uni- 
versity, and the University 
of Chicago, and taught be- 
fore at Illinois Wesleyan, 
Northwestern and State 
College of Washington. Dr. 
Yount has written for Harper's Magazine 
and also wrote a biography of Bross for the 
Bross fiftieth anniversary competition. 

Dr. Voss is also associate professor of English 
and returned to Lake Forest this year after 
having been here in 1941 and 1942. Before 
teaching here, he also taught at the University 
of Kansas and Yale where he attended school. 
Dr. Voss has contributed articles to the 
Scholastic Magazine on the field of English.

Law". 

Miss Reynolds is another new faculty mem- 
ber this year and is associate professor of 




secretarial training. She taught three years at 
the University of North Dakota and part-time 
at Roosevelt College in Chicago. The last four 
years she has worked as an accountant in 
Chicago. Miss Reynold's hometown is Artesia, 
New Mexico, and she has attended Mississippi

A new professor in economics is Mr. Smith, 
who attended Middlebury and Harvard Busi- 
ness School and taught in the Navy for two 
years. Mr. Smith comes from Pittsford,

Still another new instruc- 
tor in this department is 
Mr. Robert Sharvy, pro- 
fessor of social science. He 
came here to Lake Forest 
after going to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, Uni-

In the next Division we have the professors 
of Philosophy, Religion, and Education. As 
professor of psychology and philosophy and 
head of that division is Dr. S. P. Williams. 

Dr. Williams has been here at Lake Forest 
for many years although he also taught at the 
University of Texas and Huron College, South 
Dakota, before coming here. He has written a 
publication called "Place of Reason in Ethics". 
Dr. Karl Roth is the head of the department 
of religion and has been here twenty years. 
During this time he has expanded the field 
from just a study of the Bible to include history 
and philosophy. His other duties on campus 
this year were Director of Religious Activities, 
head of Chapel Committee, and religious 



30 



counselor. Dr. Roth attended Elmhurst, Eden 
Seminary, Oberlin, and Northwestern and 
entered the ministry in 1912 in Ohio. 

Head of the department of education is Dr. 
Reichert, who came to Lake Forest only last 
fall. Dr. Reichert went to Dartmouth, Wis- 
consin University, and Minnesota University, 
and did public school work in Minnesota and 
Wisconsin as well as being superintendent of 
schools in Highland Park. He has written 
several articles for educational magazines and 
a book for children which is to be published 
soon. Besides his duties as head of the depart- 
ment of education, he is also Director of the 
Evening Session and serves on many adminis- 
trative committees. 

A new instructor in psychology is Mrs. Mor- 
gan, who attended Ward Belmont and North- 
western. Mrs. Morgan has done research work 
at the Cradle in Evanston and has written 
many articles on child psychology. At the 
present time she is preparing two workbooks on 
abnormal psychology and childhood and 
adolescence. Her hobbies include dancing, 
walking and her little daughter, Nancy. 

Another new instructor of psychology is Dr. 
Carleton Rogers, who is Minister of the Grace 
Community Church in Lake Bluff. Dr. Rogers 
first began teaching here in the last summer 
school session in the field of religion. He at- 
tended Saint Olaf College, Hamline University, 
Northwestern University and Garrett Biblical 
Institute, and he has done radio work in Rock- 
ford where he had two programs. 

At the head of the Division of Physical and 
Natural Sciences is Dr. Bruce Lineburg, who is 
also professor of biology. Dr. Lineburg at- 
tended Southwestern State Normal in Penn- 
sylvania, Ohio University, and Johns Hopkins. 
Dr. Lineburg has had numerous articles 
published. Besides his teaching duties, he is 
also chairman of faculty athletic committee and 
chairman of entrance committee. This year the 
College Conference of Illinois elected him 
president. 

Assistant professor of biology is Dr. Eliza- 
beth Lunn, who taught here before from 1929 to 
1936. During the war she worked as a chemist. 
She attended Wellesley, University of Chicago, 
and Northwestern University. At one time 



she also assisted at Northwestern. Her home is 
in Highland Park. 

Dr. Curtis, professor of mathematics is also 
chairman of the Calendar and Schedule Com- 
mittee and teaches a course in astronomy. He 
has written many articles for publication on 
astronomy and mathematics. Dr. Curtis at- 
tended Cornell and Northwestern and is a 
Phi Beta Kappa. He taught before coming to 
Lake Forest at Barnard College, Columbia, 
New York; Wells College, Aurora, New 
York; Marquette, and Northwestern. Dr. 
Curtis' hobby is traveling and he has taken 
two trips to Europe, one trip around South 
America, visited Alaska, and several trips to 
the west coast. 

Dr. North, professor of chemistry, also has 
additional duties on the faculty as chairman 
of the Curriculum Committee. He attended 
Beloit College and the University of Illinois. 
Before coming to Lake Forest he taught at the 
University of North Dakota. Dr. North has 
written for the American Golfers Magazine. 
His hometown is Rockford, Illinois. 

A new instructor in chemistry this year is 
Mr. Moningere, who has received his degrees 
from Northwestern, Harvard, and University 
of Chicago. He now has plans to finish his 
masters in September. He has written several 
articles on physics. As hobbies, he lists reading 
and traveling. Before coming to Lake Forest, 
he served in the Marine Corps. 

Mr. Jensen is associate professor of chemistry 
and physics and taught at Northwestern from 
1944 to 1946. He received his education at 
Iowa State Teachers College and the Uni- 
versity of Iowa. He also was principal of the 
Venton High School in Iowa. Mr. Jensen has 
two children, James and Carolee, and ap- 
propriately lists as his hobbies, pictures of 
children and children's toys. 

The associate professor of physics and head 
resident of Blackstone Hall is Mr. Donald Pierce 
who taught at Northwestern two years before 
coming to Lake Forest. Mr. Pierce attended 
Augustana, University of Colorado, and North- 
western. His hometown is Moline, Illinois, and 
he lists traveling as his main hobby. 

In the department of physical education, we 

31 



find three instructors. The first is Miss Barbara 
Calmer, who is new this year as the girls' 
physical education instructor. Miss Calmer's 
home is Sioux City, Iowa, and she attended 
the University of Nebraska. Her interest in 
physical education work is shown by the long 
list of clubs pertaining to athletics to which she 
belongs. 

Coach Jones is very familiar to all of us as 
athletic director on the campus. His home is in 
Indiana and he taught at Butler University, 
Wabash College, Purdue University, and 
Illinois University as well as being trainer for 
the Chicago Bears at one time before coming to 
this campus. Along literary lines, Coach Jones 
has written three books on basketball and a 
book called "The Modern 'T' Formation in 
Football". Besides being athletic director, the 
coach takes over specifically both the football 
and baseball training. 

Another Lake Forest graduate is Kenneth 
McAllister, assistant athletic director. Besides 
attending Lake Forest, he also went to Joliet 



College and served over four years in the Army 
Air Corps. His specific duties in athletics in- 
clude basketball, intramural director, and head 
of all physical education classes. Mr. McAllister 
lives in College Hall and has two children, 
Kenneth and Michael. 

The department of physical education con- 
cludes the divisions into which the curriculum 
and professors are classified. Each administra- 
tive and faculty worker has been treated 
separately, and as we glance over the write-up 
on each one we find it hard to believe that our 
faculty includes so many when only ninety 
years ago it was a staff of one. We are proud 
of our faculty and express our appreciation to 
them for the cooperative and friendly manner 
which they have displayed in helping us in our 
studies and extra-curricular activities. It is 
only in a small school like Lake Forest that this 
may be accomplished, and the opportunity for 
a personal and friendly faculty-student rela- 
tionship has been eagerly taken advantage of 
by faculty and students alike.

LASSES 



CLASS OF 1947 



pOUR years at Lake Forest have 

P presented great variations in the 
college life for a class which came 
.^in war and left in peace. Gray skies 
'"and rainy weather marked the first 
day of our college career way back in Sept- 
ember of '43, almost symbolic of the turbulent 
times which characterized this dark period. 

We'll never forget our freshman days — the 
A.S.T.P. sharing our campus — dances at the 
U.S.O. — knitting for the Red Cross — the 
special significance of mail-call. 

Change came gradually, but surely. By our 
senior year Lake Forest had taken on more 
nearly the aspects of a normal, co-educational 
institution — return of the vets — revival of 
frats — football — basketball — baseball — old 
traditions — and a few new aspects — married 
couples — the barracks. 



Looking backward, graduation day cer- 
tainly marked sunnier times than the bleak 
beginnings of that freshman year. 

Early in the year the senior class organized 
and elected the following officers: Pete Schmit, 
president; Bee Morris, vice-president; Maren 
Nyhagen, secretary; Bud Quinlan, treasurer. 

On June 7, 1947, 109 diplomas were a- 
warded to this group, closing an important and 
memorable chapter in their lives. Not without 
sorrow do we leave Lake Forest. We will never 
forget these four wonderful years. But though 
we leave, we take with us something we have 
gained from our experience in college — the will 
to do and to succeed, confident in our ability to 
continue the pattern of success so well estab- 
lished in our college years. 



43 



JUNIORS 



Upper classmen at last, 114 members of the 
class of '48 came back this fall filled with 
enthusiasm for their Junior year. Following the 
precedent of last year's Junior class, the 48'ers 
organized early in the fall, electing the follow- 
ing officers: Roy Crandall, president; Margaret 
Flood, vice-president; Lois Lenters, secretary; 
Lila Spannenberg, treasurer. 

Ever since our first year of college in Sep- 
tember '44, we Juniors have witnessed revolu- 
tionary changes at Lake Forest. Those were 
the days when L.F.C. was almost strictly a 
women's institution. The increased feminine 
enrollment that year made it necessary to open 
two new women's dorms — Alice Burhans 
Lodge and North Hall. Since then, the situa- 
tion has been entirely reversed, the male 
element predominates, and annexes were added 
to Harlan and Blackstone Halls to accom- 
modate our newly-acquired Lake Forest men. 

Two outstanding Junior traditions success- 
fully carried out in the spring were the Junior 
Bench Ceremony and the Junior Prom. Hats 
off to the Junior class and the prom committee 
headed by the Junior's own Prom King, Hal 
Larsen, who reigned at a truly wonderful 
dance. 

With the leadership and achievement which 
characterized the class of '48, even more 
brilliant success may be predicted for their 
Senior days and throughout life always. 

SOPHOMORES 

The 49'ers returned to L.F. this fall, looking 
forward eagerly to their sophomore year, 
anxious to revive more of those traditions of 
pre-war college days. 

We were the first class to enter Lake Forest 
after the end of the war, and with us came the 
first big crop of veterans, and a lot of new 
ideas. The enrollment hit a new high during 
our freshman year, but the girls still out- 
numbered the fellows, until the revolution, or 
restoration, perhaps, when the second semester 
arrived with its outstanding number of vets. 

They set quite a precedent during their 
freshman year, and anticipated their sopho- 
more year with that good old L.F. spirit. The 




frats claimed many of their number at the 
beginning of the year, as they witnessed and 
participated in the first fraternity pledging 
ceremony since before the war. 

The sophomores worked actively on many 
committees, wrote for the Stentor and for 
.■■^,, yy the Forester, and participated 

eagerly in many clubs. Some 
of those football heroes we 
cheered on to victory were soph- 
omores. 

Indicative of their high spirit, 
the sophs organized this year and 
chose the following officers: Ed Sawyer as 
president; Wayne Wahler as vice-president, 
Lee Smith as secretary; and Bob Ray as 
treasurer. 

With college back to normal again, and 
better than ever, we sophomores are looking 
forward to another two years at L.F.C. with 
great anticipation. 

FRESHMEN 

The Freshman class — class of the mid- 
century — is one of the most promising ever to 
enter the old portals of Lake Forest. September 
1946 was the beginning of a dynamic year of 
almost pre-war normality, and our frosh fell 
right in line with that good old traditional L.F. 
spirit. 

Our Freshman class, and we're proud of 
them, numbered 241 in the fall of '46. Not only 
are they the largest class Lake Forest has ever 
seen, but they compose a greater variety of 
elements than any previous class. Besides the 
usual group fresh out of high school, there was 
a large number of veterans enrolled. 

Remember — the Freshman Mixer — Home- 
coming, the bonfire we frosh laid, the snake 
dance through town, the floats we all worked so 
hard on — that triumphant Freshman produc- 
tion of Junior Miss — sorority Courtesy Week 
and fraternity Hell Week — -Lake Forest's 
traditional under-classman edition of the 
Stentor — the Freshman Dance and crowning of 
our lovely Freshman Queen, Ginny Gosling. 

Yes, we Freshmen will mark this year in our 
calendar of memories — our first taste of life at 
Lake Forest — as one of the happiest experiences 
we have ever known.

RGANIZATIONS 



GREEKS 




^^^smm NCE more the fraternities are back 
on Lake Forest campus, and it 
^ was with eager anticipation that 
the Greek letter organizations 
assembled this fall with the hope 
of participating in all phases of campus life 
together. After a flurry of rushing and pledging 
the Greeks settled down to more serious achieve- 
ments. Members of each organization co- 
operated with each other on committees and 
competed against each other for various titles 
and honors. Each of the fraternities with its 
sister sorority planned a weekend event for the 
entire school and did many other things on 
a collective scale. 

Through their intermediary boards, Pan- 
hellenic and the Inter-Fraternity Council, the 



"Greeks" were able to run things very smoothly 
throughout the year, as well as assist in many 
campus activities. 

Our fraternities and sororities have truly 
spent a profitable year and the adjustment 
which was needed when the fraternities re- 
organized has been ably handled. They have 
played their part in campus life and have 
helped to make this life more enjoyable than 
ever. We look now toward even better years 
with the Greek letter organizations and hope 
they will continue to live up to the standards 
they have set for themselves in "participating 
in" and "in creating" campus activities. We 
pause here, then to take a backward glance at 
the Greeks and the part they played on Lake 
Forest campus. 



79 



PANHELLENIC 



ALPHA DELTA PI 



The Panhellenic Board is composed of twelve 
members, with each of the four sororities 
having equal representation. The members are 
Alpha Xi Delta, Norma Sohn, President, Gloria 
Dran, and Frances Proctor; Alpha Delta Pi, 
Bette Ann Thompson, Secretary, Joan Shearer, 
and Judy Harvey; Chi Omega, Jeanne Hale, 
Janet Fiedler, and Charlotte Black; and Gam- 
ma Phi Beta, Rose Marie Petty, Peggy Leith, 
and Mary Em Yarnall. Together with Dean 
Klink as the advisor, this organization handles 
all affairs connected with the Greek letter 
sororities and social affairs of the campus. 

The purpose of this group is two-fold: (1) 
to create a feeling of cooperation and good 
spirit between the college and the women on 
Lake Forest campus, and (2) to benefit and 
unite the interests of both fraternity and non- 
fraternity women on this campus. 

During the year, these active members regu- 
late the rules for rushing parties and courtesy 
week, announce the expenditures allowed for 
sorority functions, and state the rules in regard 
to how the sorority annexes in Lois Hall rotate. 

This year they have set up a Junior Board 
composed of freshman women to give them the 
general idea of how sororities operate at Lake 
Forest College. 

INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL 

Similar to sorority panhellenic board is the 
Inter-Fraternity Council headed this year by 
Tom McEwen. This organization this year has 
had a particularly hard job in establishing the 
fraternities once more on campus and ironing 
out all the many difficulties which have arisen. 
The Inter-Fraternity Council is responsible for 
helping the fraternities to cooperate with each 
other and in settling all inter-fraternity week- 
ends. The president and one other member is 
selected from each fraternity to serve on the 
council. This year the representatives selected 
were Alpha Sigma Kappa, Tom McEwen and 
Bob Wideman; Digamma Alpha Upsilon, Jack 
Howland and Jim King; Kappa Sigma, Bob 
Behlen and Russ Tomlinson; and Phi Pi 
Epsilon, Bob Bibbs and Bill Westine.

DIGAMMA ALPHA UPSILON 

In the spring of their senior year six men of 
the class of 1906 at Lake Forest College form- 
ally organized Digamma Alpha Upsilon Fra- 
ternity. The fraternity was not a spontaneous 
gesture on the part of these six men, but was 
rather the culmination of four years of close 
friendship. The six men were strong in college 
and the natural desire to perpetuate this 
friendship resulted in the drafting of a constitu- 
tion and the granting of a charter by the college 
to Digamma Alpha Fraternity. This year 



82 



marking the 40th anniversary of the fraternity 
was full of problems due mainly to the fact 
that the fraternity had not been open during 
the past three years of war. Thirty-five 
men became pledges of Digamma on October 
14, 1946, which was followed by the traditional 
"welcome" party afterwards . . . Among 
those pledged was Mike Powers, who later 
went on to win the "Most Valuable Player" 
award in football and also the "Most Typical 
Boy" award . . . There were three presidents 
— Alton Swanson, Jack Howland, and Bill 
Maloney . . . The initiation banquet was a 
grand affair this year combining with it an an- 
niversary party which was held at the Swedish 
Club in Chicago . . . This year, it can be 
said, was a good one despite the difficulties of 
reorganization. 

KAPPA SIGMA 

Founded at the University of Virginia in 
1869 . . . Alpha Chi Chapter at Lake Forest 
in 1896, following the Chi Chapter, 1880, first 
of Kappa Sigma north of the Mason-Dixon 
line but revoked by faculty. Kappa Sig and 
1946 meant Roy Crandall, president of the 
Junior Class, Pete "Letterman" Schmit, Prexy 
of Seniors, and Paul "Hit those books, pledges" 
Lundell, leading the Student Council . . .

geants at Arm, and J. Kenneth Warren, R. C. 
Tomlinson, Jr., and Paul M. Lundell, chaplains. 



PHI PI EPSILON 

Phi Pi Epsilon, the grand-daddy of fraterni- 
ties on campus, is fifty-three years old and still 
going strong. The men under the Crescent and 
the Eagle made their presence felt in many 
activities . . . Bill Westine headed the 
Student Center, ruled the Commons, and was 
a Who's Who in American Colleges . . . Bob 
Bibbs in addition to heading the house through 
a successful first semester, played a stellar 
game of football and was another Who's Who 
member . . . Bill Kubasta, president for the 
spring term, was last year's Prom King, and 
chairman of the Senior Dance for this year 
. . . Phipe intramural teams proved a head- 
ache for the rest of the league all year. But the 
center of any frat house is the chapter room so 
let's pay a visit to the tower end of Blackstone 
Hall and see what is coming off. You would 
probably be met at the door by "Barface" who 
will try to relieve you of a piece of your ankle, 
but above the anguished crys of Earl Barker 
from the heart game, you will probably hear 
Ben Andresky telling of the wonderful days 
before the vets got back . . . After being 
blown against the wall from Marbach's laugh 
you will probably be button-holed by the 
grand old man George Dietmeyer who will 
deliver a speech on the benefits of married life, 
assisted by Doug AUeman . . . To your ears 
will come the lilting melodies of that magnif- 
icent piano duo, Meyer and Linnell . . . Phil 
Mark, the fraternity clotheshorse, will prob- 
ably drift through with a new suit and a bit of 
dry wit, and over the yells for the boys to fill 
the Coke machine will sound the ringing rasp 
of Bill Carlin selling sandwiches . . . and 
Fairbanks instructing the pledges ... al- 
though at times resembling a madhouse, the 
Phipes presented a well-rounded tight-knit 
group . . . and the close of another successful 
year in Phi Pi Epsilon.

HONORS 



lAKE Forest offers many recogni- 

ttions for outstanding work done 
and the old saying "Hitch your 
wagon to a star" goes in college 
life as elsewhere. The College 
realized this and through the years it has 
created "stars" in the form of honorary 
societies for students to strive to reach. The 
thing we like most about our stars is that they 
actually can be reached. A look at the following 
pages will prove that. Our stars are high — you 
have to stand on your toes to get them — but 
they are within your grasp. Stretch a little 
more — you can get one, too. 



WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN COLLEGES 

The brightest star in our sky is one that 
reflects the light of the other stars — it is Who's 
Who. To this highest collegiate honor, awarded 
on the basis of scholastic and extra-curricular 
merits, eleven seniors were named. It is a 
great honor to be chosen as this year's repre- 
sentatives from Lake Forest in the national 
roll of Who's Who in American Universities and 
Colleges. The seniors elected this year to 
Who's Who are O'Ray Baxter, W.A.A. presi- 
dent from the Pacific Coast state of Oregon; 
Robert Bibbs, from Mankato, Minnesota, an 



84 



Iron Key Man and president of Phi Pi Epsilon; 
Helen Louise Chase, W.S.G.A. president from 
Oakmont, Pennsylvania; Gloria Dran, who has 
been outstanding in many activities, from 
Yonkers, New York; Gloria Frank, super- 
efficient girl from Chicago, and this year's 
Forester editor; Jack Howland, from Green 
Bay, Wisconsin, one of our outstanding 
athletes and a participant in many campus 
activities; Peggy Leith, talented girl from 
Waukegan, who has been outsanding in dra- 
matics as well as in many other activities; 
Paul Lundell, Student Council president, from 
Northbrook; Norma Sohn, from Teaneck, 
New York, and this year's Stentor editor; 
Russell Tomlinson, from Lake Forest, who has 
put forth his efforts mainly in Garrick and 
debate work; and Bill Westine, from Glenview, 
this year's Student Center chairman. The 
list of their accomplishments is impressive. 
Our Who's Who members are true leaders and 
they will carry on the tradition with futures 
just as successful as their years at Lake Forest. 

SIGMA ETA 

In 1929 Sigma Eta was created to encourage 
and recognize high attainment in scholarship. 
Each spring the faculty members of Phi Beta 
Kappa elect to Sigma Eta, the juniors having 
the highest scholarship record providing it is 
not below 2.8 and the seniors receiving the 
highest marks during their college years pro- 
viding they do not fall below 2.7. To be eligible 
for consideration the student must have spent 
three semesters at Lake Forest. Those who 
won Shield Honors in years previous to 1929 
are considered as members. The insignia is in 
the form of a key with the college seal on it and 
the Greek letters for Sigma Eta. The plaques 
are placed in the library above the door with 
the names of those chosen engraved upon them. 
Last year Norma Sohn, Peggy Leith and Daisy 
Hermann were elected to membership in this 
highly honored organization. 

IRON KEY 

The highest of all honors for men, awarded 
on the basis of all-round development is 
membership in the Iron Key. Few can forget 



the impressive ceremony at Honor's Day 
chapel when the cloaked brother of the iron 
hand taps those fortunates who have made the 
grade. The new men to be tapped are known to 
none but members until the bid day. In the 
twenty-seven years since its founding in 1920 
many have aspired for this coveted honor, but 
few have been chosen. The wearers of the Iron 
Key can be proud of the star they have 
reached. Bob Bibbs and Paul McKenna are the 
only two active members of Iron Key on the 
campus this year. 

KAPPA ALPHA 

The Iron Key has a "sister star" in the sky 
of honors in Kappa Alpha. For the women who 
at the end of their junior year have shown 
outstanding constructive educational work and 
who have upheld college loyalty and culture 
this star is waiting. Ever since its founding 
locally in 1919, it has taken an active interest 
in college activity and strived to promote the 
ideals of the school. Honor's Day chapel is the 
culminating point for the organization for on 
that day the new members are announced and 
initiated. The freshman cup is awarded by the 
organization to the girl in the freshman class 
who has proven herself outstanding. This year 
Peggy Leith heads the organization. 

PHI SIGMA ETA 

For the 2.5 men in the 
freshman class the honorary 
national fraternity. Phi Eta 
Sigma, invites membership. 
Lake Forest College had the 
first small college chapter in 
the country organized in 1929. This fraternity 
encourages scholarship among freshman men. 
Its standards are high, but not unattainable. 
At Honor's Day chapel the organization 
awards a cup to the man with the highest 
average in the freshman class. President E. A. 
Johnson and Dr. R. B. Williams are honorary 
members and faculty advisers. Herb Glasser 
is president. At the end of the first semester 
nine new members were taken into the organ- 
ization — the largest single group to be added. 
The following men were initiated: William

8S 



Parker, John Jerrard, John Bulger, Harland 
Howard, Leonard DeMichele, Guido Lenzini, 
Bruce Larsen, Herbert Hermann, and Ward 
Diethorn. 

ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA 

One of the brightest stars is that of Alpha 
Lambda Delta, national honorary society for 
freshman women. How proud its members are 
of the height they have attained and how 
proud Lake Forest is to have had this fine 
organization since 1934. Membership is at- 
tained by any freshman girl who has a 2.5 
average at the end of her first semester or a 2.5 
average at the end of her freshman year. Once 
she attains this mark she is an Alpha Lambda 
Delta for life. The tiny golden lamp on her 
pin represents the light of knowledge that 
illuminates the world. It is a challenge to her to 
keep up the good work and to encourage 
scholarship among the freshmen that enter 
every year. The group has as its sponsors, Dean 
Kathryn Klink and Mrs. E. A. Johnson. This 
year Margaret Flood is president, Betty 
Hennessey, vice-president, and Lois Lenters, 
secretary-treasurer. Alpha Lambda Delta in- 
itiated five new members this year — Sara Jane 
Irwin, Barbara Hahn, Doris Beatty, Lorene 
LaBelle, and Sandra Glass. 

PI ALPHA CHI 

Talent in music ? Pi Alpha 
Chi will interest you. It was 
founded in 1936 on Lake 
Forest campus to stimulate 
an active interest in music and an apprecia- 
tion and criticism of it. Every year tryouts for 
membership — an instrumental or vocal per- 
formance — are held by the members. Those 
chosen for membership represent the "cream" 
of musical talent at the College. The assembly 
program it presented, the Christmas concert it 
sponsored and the reports of entertainment it 
has given on various occasions are proof that 
Pi Alpha Chi is another of Lake Forest's 
"stars". 

GARRICK 

One of our oldest "stars" is the Garrick 
Club. In its 44th season it holds a high place in 




the sky of honor. This group is open to anyone 
who is sincerely interested in dramatics and 
able to meet the requirements of participation 
in the plays produced. Under the able guidance 
of Mr. Tomlinson, many a Garrick player has 
stepped on to careers in the theater or radio. 
The student body as well as the town people 
can easily agree that a play sponsored by 
Garrick is always a successful and entertaining 
one. Angel Street and Junior Miss, the two 
plays presented in the fall semester were 
splendid examples of the Garrick ability. 
Garrick is an honor to belong to, as well as to 
have present, on Lake Forest College campus. 

PHI SIGMA IOTA 

One of the oldest fraternities on the campus is 
Phi Sigma Iota. The purpose of this national 
honorary organization is to promote interest in 
countries such as France, Spain and Italy and 
to investigate their languages and their litera- 
ture. By doing this, the members hope to 
achieve a closer relationship and greater 
understanding between these counties and the 
United States. Outstanding language majors 
form the nucleus of the organization. All 
students majoring in romance languages and 
maintaining an "A-B" average in their lan- 
guage courses are eligible for membership. The 
fraternity is under the sponsorship of Dr. R. B. 
Williams and Dr. Madeline Ashton. 

BETA BETA BETA 

Scientifically minded? But more specifically, 
biologically minded? Tri Beta has a place for 
you if you are truly interested. The chapter 
here at Lake Forest, organized in 1935 is just 
a part of a large national fraternity. For 
students who are interested in encouraging 
scholarly achievement in biology and in culti- 
vating an intellectual interest in the natural 
sciences, this society presents many oppor- 
tunities. The activities are varied — field trips, 
speakers, and informal discussion groups offer 
opportunities for the exchange of ideas and 
the encouragement of new activities. Dr. Line- 
burg is the able sponsor. The officers for the 
year are president, Dorothy Distelhorst; vice- 
president, Bill Jennings; and secretary, Lois 
Lenters.

GOVERNING 




TUDENT government is well 
practiced on this campus in the 
form of our three self-governing 
units. In order to maintain an 
integrated and successful campus 
life among students in coopera- 
tion with the faculty, a representative student 
governing organization is necessary. The need 
for this has been recognized and Lake Forest 
College has shown its fairness in providing an 
opportunity to the students for just such a 
system of self-government. The three groups 
which have undertaken this task are the 
Student Council, the chief student body on 
campus, the Women's Self-Government As- 
sociation, which deals with resident women's 
problems, and the Student Center, which 



provides entertainment. The members of 
these organizations have worked side by side 
in an attempt to establish a common interest 
in the college affairs among the students and 
to tighten the ties between them and the 
administration in an effort to provide unity 
that is necessary for a college of our size. 



STUDENT COUNCIL 

On Lake Forest campus we have a fine 
student governing organization, consisting of 
elected representatives from each fraternal 
group and the independent groups, which holds 
weekly meetings with faculty advisers in an 
attempt to aid the welfare of their fellow 



87 



^.-^ 




The memorable 



students. Long hours are spent in helping to 
establish an integrated social program for our 
campus activities. This includes planning a 
calendar to include all events sponsored by 
the various organizations r , ^ 

during the year so that col- 
lege life at Lake Forest is 
not all work and no play. In 
fact, the council itself spon- 
sors several important func- 
tions during each term. 
White Christmas Formal, held at the Moraine 
Hotel, can trace its successful evening to the 
council and that organization can be proud of 
the praises bestowed upon them for the very 
fine decorations, the smooth orchestra, and 
another happy time for us all while at L.F.C. 
The second term also produced a big event 
sponsored by the Council . . . College Day. 
This was a well-planned, fun-backed day with 
plenty of opportunity for us to show prospec- 
tive students the fine college and the happy 
life we lead here. 

Not only does this group organize our social 
program but it helps us in expressing to the 
faculty our view on the cut system, food, 
vacations, and other problems which may arise 
on a college campus. Through arbitrary, 
harmonious meetings, the council and the 
faculty have ironed out many misunderstand- 
ings and have achieved their goal of aiding 
the welfare of the students. 

Paul Lundell has led the Student Council 
this year and has had the capable assistance of 
the vice-president, Wally Spooner, followed by 
Othello Ellis the second term, and Sunny 
Chase, secretary-treasurer. 

STUDENT CENTER 

The Student Center is a group of students, 
each representing a campus organization, who 
endeavor to plan a program of social activities 
for all the fellows and girls attending L.F.C. 
All those quizzes we attended during the year 
were sponsored and conducted by its members 
and a lot of enjoyment resulted from those 
brain teasers. Another series of events that the 
Student Center planned was the number of 
exciting volleyball and basketball games played 
between fraternities and sororities. Student 



Center activities are not hmited to sponsoring 
planned entertainment as they also take care of 
the recreation room in College Hall; being 
responsible for keeping the balls and paddles 
supplied for the ping pong table, keeping the 
billiard table in condition, and supplying 
plenty of cards for bridge. Practically every 
student on campus has at one time had some 
fun that they owed to chairman Bill Westine 
and the other members of the Student Center, 
for they have faithfully kept some sort of 
entertainment open for our use. 

WOMEN'S SELF-GOVERNING 
ASSOCIATION 

What is this W.S.G.A. we hear so much 
about every time a new ruling for the girls 
goes into effect? It's none other than the 
Women's Self-Government Association com- 
prised of selected and elected women students 
from Lake Forest campus. This organization 
decides on all issues concerning the rights of 
the resident women . . . what permissions are 
fair, quiet hours during exam week, regulations 
as to guests in the dormitories and all the other 
problems which need guidance in order to keep 
the women's life on campus running smoothly 
and fairly. 

This organization, which is advised by Dean 
Klink, has a fine, representative membership 
under the adept leadership of its president, 
Sunny Chase. O'Ray Baxter as vice-president 
was chairman of the annual W.S.G.A. Formal 
which proved to be one of the most successful 
social affairs of the year. Acting as secretary for 
the first term was Daisy Morris, followed by 
Sally Stephenson when Daisy became a com- 
muter in the second term. 

W.S.G.A. meets weekly and works always 
toward making life fair among the women 
students. This has meant campusing some of 
the girls plus a few strict regulations but on the 
other hand it is W.S.G.A. which extends those 
permissions for the mid-week athletic activities 
and for those big formals when 2:00 seems very 
nice instead of the regular 1 :10. So, as you see, 
the Women's Self-Government Association, a 
permanent organization established for the 
welfare of the girls, is proving itself to be well 
worth its while.

PUBLICATIONS 




ITERARY talent and inspira- 
tions are given great recognition 
on Lake Forest campus through 
work on our three publications, 
the Stentor, Forester, and Tusi- 
tala. Talent ranging from feature 
writing to business management can be utilized 
in the production of these three publications 
each year and a great many students have 
cooperated together to make possible the 
publishing of these three fine works of which 
Lake Forest will long be proud. 

STENTOR 

Headed this year by editor Norma Sohn, the 
Stentor tried and succeeded in enlarging the 
paper to a six page weekly. Monday and Tues- 



day nights in the Stentor office looked like a 
very thankless job to we who looked in after 
night classes or on our way home from the 
Coffee Shop — but those who worked on the 
paper gained much along vocational lines — and 
had a wonderful time doing it — so we're told! 

Sharing honors for a good job well done is 
Bill Westine, who served this year as Business 
Manager for the paper. "Tippecanoe" Westine 
began the year with practically no staff and 
during the space of a few months, acquired a 
staff that ran as smoothly as a machine. He's 
the boy who was largely responsible for those 
six-page papers. 

Working under editor-in-chief, Sohn, were 
news-editor. Sue Kastler and assistant Jo 
Paskins. Jean Hale served as feature editor and 
Jack Gennaro as campus editor. Wally Witt 



89 




had full charge of the sports page. This year a 
new department was instituted in the paper — 
the world news department. It was efficiently 
handled by Gloria Dran. Elaine Truitt had 
charge of circulation, Natsu Ota was proof 
reading editor, and Helen Harris headed the 
typing staff. 

This year an old Lake Forest tradition was 
re-established by the paper. In yea/s past it has 
always been the custom for the regular staff to 
resign for a week in favor of the underclassmen. 

For this week, the underclassman editor 
must wrestle with all the problems — and 
sometimes more — which are encountered by 
the regular staff. This year, Jo Paskins, a 
sophomore, headed the staff for the under- 
classman issue of the paper. Jim Crassweller 
assisted her as news editor, 
|j/ Laura Jennings, as feature 
i/y editor, and Lynn Beidler, 
as campus editor. 



FORESTER 

The Forester — Lake Forest's annual record 
of campus life — was headed this year by 
editor, Gloria Frank. An efficient job was done 
in grappling with engravers, printers and the 
post office facilities in producing this year's 
book. T\\^Forester staff has made it their job 
to cover all events on campus ranging from 
formal affairs to informal candid shots of 
students about campus. 

The 1947 Forester owes a great deal of credit 
to the many students who worked so hard and 
gave so much time to the various phases of its 
publication. Margaret Flood was copy editor 
with the following people working under her: 
Bob Lanum, Sara Jane Irwin, Barbara Hahn, 
Ruth Reisman, Lois Lenters, Barbara Coss, 
Sue Kastler, Dotty Broberg, Esther Oman, 
Dorcas Brausch, Betty Lu Avildsen, Demi 
Bowers, Jim Crassweller, and Laura Jennings. 
Joan Hitchcock was photography editor 
with Emalou Bishop as her assistant, Mary 
Jane Magruder, art editor; Bee Morris, busi- 
ness and advertising manager; Bill Van Kueren, 
photographer; Bettie Zillman, faculty and 
administration editor, assisted by Jean Ely 



and Virginia Kissel; Lucille Bischoff, class 
editor; Peggy Leith, organizations editor; 
Carol Wilson, student life editor; and Norma 
Tess, athletic editor. As a result of their work 
and cooperation this year's 1947 Forester comes 
to you for your approval. 

TUSITALA 

Tusitala has long been a custom of the col- 
lege. It was established years ago as a magazine 
for the purpose of publishing creative achieve- 
ments of the student body along literary lines. 
The publication was named, strangely enough, 
after Robert Louis Stephenson, who was given 
that name by the natives of Tahite. Literally 
translated it means "Teller of Tales" — and 
that is the solution of Tusitala's name. For 
several years the magazine was forced to go 
unpublished — sometimes for lack of printing 
materials, sometimes for lack of copy. This 
year's editor, Dorothy Jansen, has overcome 
both obstacles and the Tusitala will once again 
be printed. Purposes of the 1947 Tusitala were 
to synthesize the important thoughts and 
emotions of the new post-war era, so as to have 
a record of the growth of our ideals along with 
the maturing of our country. Dave Samples, 
Laura Jennings, and Demi Bowers worked as 
a staff under Dorothy. As a result of much 
Tusitala publicity throughout the campus, a 
great deal of copy v/as turned in. It was the 
job of this staff to read all of this copy, evaluate 
its worth, and if possible, find a place for it in 
the publication. 

Tusitala was organized, this year, with the 
idea of giving every contribution the same 
attention and honest judgment which is 
necessary to put out a magazine which will 
contain the finest literary work submitted. 
This year anew system of judging was initiated. 
The name of the contributor was removed 
from the work and a number was substituted. 
This insured the highest degree of impartial 
judgment possible. 

The first post-war edition of Tusitala came 
out in April of 1947 — and, thanks to Dotty 
Jansen, Dave Samples, Laura Jennings, and 
Demi Bowers, it measured up to — and sur- 
passed — the Tusitala's of old.

CLUBS 




GREAT variety of clubs are open 
to every student who cares to 
devote some of his extra-curricular 
time to them. In these ten organiza- 
tions which have been classed as 
clubs, we find a great majority of our students 
represented. 

The talent found here ranges from those who 
are students in French and economics to those 
who care to devote their time to such things as 
debating. These varied organizations speak 
well for the opportunities which Lake Forest 
leaves open for its students. We are proud to 
join these groups as well as we are proud to 
have them represented on our campus. They 
speak well for the college in that they incite 
interest in many fields and help us all in our 
search for greater varieties of activity and for 



more practice in actual organization and par- 
ticipation in groups. 

INDEPENDENT MEN'S CLUB 

On every college campus there is a group of 
men not affiliated with any fraternity. Here at 
Lake Forest College the Independent Men's 
Club is the largest single organization on 
campus. Its purpose is to give the independent 
men of this college a campus voice and to 
represent them in all activities. There are no 
requirements, no rituals, or monetary obliga- 
tions connected with the I.M.C. It holds in- 
formal meetings about once a week. Here 
"gripes" and student problems are aired out 
and brought to the attention of the Student 
Council representative who in turn presents 



91 




them to the council at regularmeetings. Also, 
at regular meetings, the independents discuss 
plans for dances, organize their intramural 
athletic teams and work out 
plans for raising money 
which goes back into other 
independent activities. 

I.M.C. officers are chosen 
at the beginning of every 
year. Jim Crassweller, a 
freshman from Chicago and 
a graduate of Todd Boys School in Woodstock, 
Illinois, was this year's president. Othello 
"Ace" Ellis, a sophomore from Waukegan, and 
graduate of Du Sable High School in Chicago, 
was secretary-treasurer. The group also has 
two student council representatives. They were 
Robert Albrecht, a junior from Chicago and 
formerly from University of Minnesota and 
Northwestern University, and "Ace" Ellis. 
Gordon Lane, another sophomore from Wil- 
mette, is I.M.C. representative to the Intra- 
mural Control Board. 

The 1946-47 school year has been one of 
the most successful for the Independent Men's 
Club. For the first time in the school's history, 
the independent men captured the prized 
Iron Key Float Trophy for the most original 
homecoming float in the men's division. The 
I.M.C. with the independent women sponsored 
the first annual "Dream Date" raffle. The 
organization's future plans include the decora- 
tion and furnishing of its first recreation lounge 
in Harlan Hall Annex. 

INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S CLUB 

The Independent Women's Club, better 
known around Lake Forest campus as the 
I.W.C. is a fine and busy group of our co-eds. It 
is an association organized with the express 
purpose of giving all those Lake Forest women 
not affiliated with the Greek letter sororities a 
chance to participate in campus activities as a 
group. This is an equality that is duly ap- 
preciated and taken advantage of by its mem- 
bers. Presiding at the weekly meetings of 
I.W.C. is Audrey Ardies, a senior and Johns- 
Manville student from Toronto, Canada. 
Other officers are Avis Kleinman, sophomore 
from Chicago, vice-president; Betty Jane 



Sackman, senior, from St. Cloud, Minnesota, 
secretary; and Betty Peterson, freshman from 
Elgin, Treasurer. 

As an organized group the Independent 
Women's Club sponsors volleyball, basketball 
and baseball teams to compete in the intra- 
mural games on the campus. They also nomi- 
nate and support a candidate for all the 
campus queen elections. Once a month the 
independent women meet in the lounge of 
Alice Burhans for bridge games. This is only 
one phase of their social life as a group, 

FRENCH CLUB 

The French Club is a product of reconversion 
on Lake Forest campus. After having dis- 
appeared along with auto tires, meat, sugar 
and other rationed items during the war, this 
organization was resurrected from its past by 
the influence of Jack Brown. No one on the 
campus at the present seems to know very 
much about the history of the French Club, 
except that it was present in former years. The 
purpose of the French Club is to stimulate an 
interest in the French language, literature and 
people. Here students are also able to obtain 
information supplementary to that gained in 
their regular courses of study. The meetings 
this year consisted of talks on Paris, discus- 
sions of France in general and listening to 
records. Dr. Madeline Ashton is faculty ad- 
visor of the French Club. 

Membership into this select group is not 
obtained by simply parlez-vousing francais. 
Only those students currently earning a "B" 
in French 203-204 or a more advanced course 
are eligible for membership. Because of these 
rather strict requirements, there are only six 
members. This small group includes Selma 
Blumenkrantz of New York City, who carries 
her New York accent over into French; Demi 
Bowers of Fargo, North Dakota; Jack Brown, 
commuter from Evanston, who is vice-presi- 
dent of the group; Marge Davis, who uses her 
Pittsburgh accent in French also; Judy Hawkes 
of Peoria, Joan Hitchcock, whose home is in 
Brussels, Belgium, and who is president of 
the club; and Fren Jansen, who comes from 
Sycamore, Illinois

DEBATE 



ECONOMICS CLUB 



On campus there is one group who especially 
likes to talk and argue; the L.F.C. debators. 
This year the question was "Resolved: that 
labor should be given a direct share in the 
management of industry". At the beginning of 
the year and in between tournaments, practice 
debates were held with individual colleges 
including Mundelein College, Northwestern 
University, Morton College, Carroll College, 
and Marquette University. The season came 
into full swing when the group of eight de- 
bators attended the State Invitational Meet 
at DeKalb, Illinois. Following this on February 
28 and March 1 was the Forensic Tournament 
at Southern Illinois State Normal College in 
Carbondale, and on March 28 and 29 was the 
Twelfth Annual State tournement at Illinois 
Wesleyan College. 

Debating is not a new activity at L.F.C. 
When Mr. Russell Tomlinson came here in 
1928 he started from the bottom and slowly 
formed an active group. At first the team con- 
sisted only of men, but the women came to 
power and joined them in 1935. Sometime in 
the early '30's, debating was put on a com- 
petitive basis. The L.F.C. teams took trips 
through the midwest, visiting such schools as 
Wabash and DeKalb. This loquacious school 
group became prominent in 1932 when it made 
the remarkable record of winning 11 out of 
12 debates at Manchester College. Lake Forest 
has sent teams to the University of Iowa, the 
University of Wisconsin, and other prominent 
educational institutions for tournaments. The 
teams have won first place trophies in the 
Illinois Inter-Collegiate Debate Tournament 
four years in a row — 1939, 1940, 1941 and 

1942. From this point on the group continued 
to do well until its temporary termination in 

1943, due to Mr. Tomlinson's absence. 

The group this year was comprised of Audrey 
Ardies, Sunny Chase, O'Ray Baxter, Betty 
Bennett, Jeanne Hale, Barb Hahn, Ken War- 
ren, Russ Tomlinson and Don Wiiken. Mr. 
Martin is the coach while Mrs. Douglas, a 
former star L.F.C. debator, assisted him at 
meets. 



At the November meeting of the Economics 
Club, Don Wiiken was elected president of the 
group and Shirley Flood was elected vice- 
president. This was the first meeting of the 
1946-47 school year. The Economics Club is not 
a newly organized group as it has been func- 
tioning for a good many years. Its purpose is to 
have group discussions comprised of students 
majoring in economics and who are interested 
in current events. All students majoring in 
economics and who are interested in these out- 
of classroom discussions are eligible. This year 
has been quite an active one for the group in 
spite of the other numerous activities on 
campus. Don Wiiken and the club's faculty 
sponsor, Mr. Keller, have managed to make 
each discussion interesting and certainly worth- 
while for those attending. 

At one meeting they had as the guest 
speaker, Hugo S. Sonnenschien, Jr., a Lake 
Forest alumnus. Mr. Sonnenschien spoke on 
the "portal to portal" suits; one of the year's 
most controversial subjects. Future plans 
which have been partly carried out this year 
include new speakers at each meeting. The 
club plans to have representatives from both 
labor and management in order that its mem- 
bers may receive a broad view of the current 
labor problem. 

The 1946-47 school year for the Economics 
Club has been a successful one and with future 
plans being formed to include a larger group, 
its prospects for next year look bright. 

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB 

There is at Lake Forest College an organiza- 
tion whose membership is open to everyone; 
providing they have an interest in and like to 
discuss current world affairs and international 
issues. One of the most popular activities on the 
campus, this group has as its advisor. Dr. 
Hartzo. President, Lila Spannenberg, vice- 
president, Harry Kunzer, and treasurer, Car- 
olyn Spiwak, are at the head of this discussion 
group. 

The International Relations Club, a national 
organization, was established at Lake Forest 



93 



College in 1931 by the Carnegie Foundation 
for International peace. This endowment 
supplies the I.R.C. with periodicals, pamphlets, 
and books which are found in the library. The 
Carnegie Foundation has offices in New York, 
Washington, Paris, and London. On April 4 
and 5 members of the I.R.C. attended a 
regional conference at Butler University. Here 
schools from the middle west met for a business 
meeting and discussion groups. The programs 
of the International Relations Club are dis- 
cussions planned on some phase of current 
world affairs and international problems. 

STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Student Christian Association is one of 
the most progressive and best organized 
groups on campus. The S.C.A. led by Paul 
Lundell, is comparatively new on the campus, 
but the 1946-47 year has been a banner one. 

S.C.A.'s policy is typical of the group's 
democratic platform. The association is to 
include members of all denominations and 
religious faiths. The group has weekly discus- 
sions, held on Sunday night at the Presby- 
terian Church in Lake Forest. During the first 
semester, dinners were held every Sunday with 
discussions immediately following. The pro- 
gram for the second semester was altered a 
little. Dinners were held twice monthly and 
took place in the members' homes on a rota- 
tion system. 

Field trips, community sings, picnics and 
general discussions are held regularly. On 
November 10, the group went to Zion, Illinois, 
to see "Pilgrim's Progress". Numerous speakers 
have been guests of the group. These and 
other activities reflect the versatile nature of 
the Student Christian Association. 

S.C.A. is open to everyone. Most of the 
Sunday night discussions are led by the mem- 
bers themselves and are based around problems 
we all are exposed to, such as, "What Does 
Christianity Demand of a Person". This dis- 
cussion was led by Sunny Chase on October 27. 

Mr. Andrus, minister of the Lake Forest 
Presbyterian Church, was the discussion leader 
on November 17. The topic was "Free Will and 
Determination". Dr. Ernest Johnson is also 
frequently a discussion leader. 

94 




The officers of the S.C.A. are all well known 
campus people. They are Paul Lundell, presi- 
dent; Carol Wilson, vice-president and program 
chairman; Helen Louise Chase, secretary; 
Kenneth Warren, treasurer; O'Ray Baxter and 
Russ Tomlinson, area representatives, and 
A. Myrvin DeLapp, adviser. 

RED CROSS 

A Red Cross college unit was chartered at 
Lake Forest College in 1943 and now operates 
under the supervision of the Chicago head- 
quarters. The officers of this organization are 
president, Bettie Zillman, Milwaukee, Wis- 
consin; vice-president, Marian Klammt, Yon- 
kers, New York; secretary, Jeanne Hale, St. 
Louis, Missouri; publicity chairman, Margaret 
Flood, Gurnee, Illinois; production chairman, 
Betty Lu Avildsen, Oak 
Park, Illinois; camp and 
hospital chairman, Janet 
Fiedler, Yonkers, New 
York; water safety chair- 
man, Carol Wilson, Mich- 
igan City, Indiana; and drive chairman. Bee 
Morris, Wilmette, Illinois. 

These representatives from Lake Forest 
College have attended numerous meetings in 
Chicago and have brought back to the campus 
the Red Cross, its aims and needs. 

Bee Morris, drive chairman, headed the 
annual national Red Cross Fund Campaign 
which was this year held from March 1 to 15. 

At the request of this group all the girls of 
the college were feverishly at work this year 
knitting squares to make afghans. Those who 
didn't know how to knit learned so they could 
donate their two squares to the finished job. 

Several times during the year girls from Lake 
Forest College under the supervision of the 
Red Cross have gone to Fort Sheridan and 
Great Lakes to entertain the men there at 
dances and parties. 

In previous years the committee has spon- 
sored life saving and instruction classes for 
women, but this year this was discontinued 
because there was not a swimming pool avail- 
able. 

Miss Madeline Ashton is the faculty advisor 
of the Red Cross college unit at Lake Forest. 



JOHNS-MANVILLE 

1947 marks the end of an era here at Lake 
Forest College. The "J-M" girls who brought 
this new phase to our campus will graduate 
this June. However, a new era is beginning with 
the arrival last fall of eight men, who as juniors 
are starting their first year as"J-M's". 

Johns-Manville has brought to Lake Forest 
College students from all sections of the United 
States and even Canada. It is easy to see this 
geographical distribution when we know that 
Hal Larsen, Bob Lineberger, and Bill Sandon 
are from California. Other representatives of 
the west are Dick Strom, the only senior boy, 
from Washington, and O'Ray Baxter from 
Oregon. Canada sends us Dick Park, Len 
Tyrrell, Audrey Ardies and Betty Benett. 
Quite close to home are Bob McGonagil, Ann 
Shumaker, Dottie Broberg and Esther Oman 
of Chicago and Peggy Leith and Betsy Schlung 
of Waukegan. Other middle westerners are 
Rosie Petty and Sally Stephenson of Indiana, 
Jeanne Hale of Missouri, Lennie Middleton 
from Ohio, Elaine Truitt from Michigan and 
Bernice Zeitler from Wisconsin. The east is 
well represented by Sunny Chase from Penn- 
sylvania, Norma Sohn and Jeanne Daniels 
from New Jersey, Janet Fiedler, Marian 
Klammt, Maren Nyhagen, Betty Thompson 
and Gloria Dran from New York. Paul 
Yorkston comes from Maine. Mary Jane 
Magruder is the lone representative from the 
south — the state of Georgia. 

These students were awarded scholarships 
on the basis of scholastic achievement, leader- 
ship, character, and extra-curricular activity. 
Through their years at Lake Forest the 
"J-M's" have maintained reputations as out- 
standing leaders on the campus. 

The "J-M" program is a coordinated college 
and business training course in which the 
student carries the usual college hours and 
during the week works two days for Johns- 
Manville in either their Waukegan or Chicago 
plant. Throughout this period they were 
trained in every phase presented by the diversi- 
fied business of Johns-Mansville. There are 
some business courses which the "J-M's" are 
required to take. They then select their own 
subjects and may major in the field of their 



choice. Counselor to the students in the pro- 
gram is Miss Oma Bishop. 

In the four years they have been a part of 
our campus life, the "J-M's" have contributed 
much to the fine standards of Lake Forest. 
They have received their college education and 
business training and are now ready to step 
into positions of responsibility with Johns- 
Manville plants all over the United States and 
Canada. 

WAITS 

The Waits — these are the fellows that come 
tripping gaily out of the inner regions of the 
kitchen and deposit the varied concoctions 
under our noses. These are the little men that 
slip away with our half finished dessert dishes, 
the minute we look in the other direction. They 
are the bane of our existence, but we love them 
— everyone. 

On top of the heap is our conscientious King 
of Commons, Bud Quinlan. The crown isn't 
showing, but he wears a one-hundred caret 
smile. 

There is also the King of Kitchen, Rex 
Dahmes. The third distinguished member of 
this trio is checker, Bob Bibbs. With an eagle 
eye he ferrets out any ofF-campus students — 
guests to those who know the language of the 
Commons. There are other notables, too. Jack 
O'Rourke is the one and only Wait to exceed 
the J5.00 breakage fee. He plays football, too. 
(Any connection?) Paul McKenna, with the 
able assistance of Lowell Fisher takes charge 
of coffee and milk. Earl Barker marks his place 
for posterity by being the slowest wait. Others 
on the staflF are two chefs and five women 
assistants — and last, but not least, is Mrs. 
Anna Smith, making a grand total of thirty- 
seven. 

The Waits eat before the students. There are 
supposedly thirty-five minutes of actual wait- 
ing time but the fellows try to speed this up. 

Due to the increased enrollment this year it 
was necessary to again use the dining room in 
Lois Durand Hall. Here about ninety girls 
from Alice and Lois take their meals. Lila 
Spannenberg reigns as Queen of Lois with 
fourteen girls and three fellows obeying her 
every command. 1946 saw the addition of Miss 
DeVaney as dietician.

MUSIC 




ROM the walls of Academia we 
daily hear the echoes of much act- 
ivity in the Department of Music 
which is open to all. Everyone 
has a chance to participate in the 
courses it offers and in its extra-curricular ac- 
tivities. Every course and activity is open to 
those who want to learn about music, or who 
want to enjoy its recreational qualities. The 
music department is not trying to produce and 
train professionals, but to provide a wholesome 
program of music courses and extra-curricular 
music recreation. 

In the past, the department has consisted of 
just a few courses. Music was used more as an 
extra-curricular type of activity. Some of the 



teachers then were on a part-time; some on a 
full-time basis. When we started out this year, 
it was felt that there was enough talent in the 
school to warrant more use of the music 
department, and there was plenty of demand 
for its courses. The whole program of music was 
completely revised. The student may now 
make music his major subject. A complete 
major is offered in either the field of theory, 
voice, piano, band or orchestra. New courses 
have been added to the curriculum in a number 
of advanced theoretical subjects as well as in 
elementary ones. The department offers work 
in beginning and advanced theory, harmony, 
music appreciation, and history, plus ele- 
mentary and specialized music methods for 
those who plan to become music teachers. A 



96 




few music courses are being taught in night 
school. These are very popular and in great 
demand. 

The department is headed by Mr. Arnold 
Thomas and his colleague, Mrs. Ruth Dalbo. 
Mr. Thomas is a specialist in music history, 
literature and appreciation, as well as an 
excellent director of choral and instrumental 
groups. Mrs. Dalbo, an accomplished pianist, 
specializes in music theory. 

The music department has expanded to the 
extent that housing facilities are inadequate. 
Plans are being made for a fine arts building 
with plenty of space for the music, art, and 
drama departments. In this building will be 
the class rooms, studios and 
class rooms. Equipment is 
being added regularly to the 
present music building. 
There is a very complete 
record library as well as a 
library of music books. 
Both are being supplemented by the latest 
editions. In the fall, a new reproducing ma- 
chine was purchased, and in the coming year 
new pianos are to replace the ones we have now. 

Private instruction is offered in voice, piano, 
violin and band instruments. Throughout this 
academic year, the music department will have 
given about 1700 private half-hour lessons. 
These students, as well as those in the choirs, 
participate in chapel exercises and give recitals 
for the campus as well as the town's people. 

Besides bringing the Lake Forest music 
department up to a self-sufficient working 
organization, Mr. Thomas' aim is toward 
getting the music department on the accredited 
list of the National Association of Schools of 
Music. 

The organizations the music department 
sponsors are many and are whole-heartedly 
supported. They are: Mixed Chorus, both 
Men's Glee Club and Women's Glee Club, 
Madrigal Club, Girls' Trio, Men's Quartet, and 
the Band. These groups are under the leader- 
ship of Mr. Thomas and carry on the friendly 
co-operative spirit of Lake Forest College. 
Their purpose is to further interest in the 
music field and to provide fun and enjoyment 
for both members and their audiences. 



MIXED CHORUS 

There are fifty-two members in the A cap- 
pella Choir, better known on campus as the 
Mixed Chorus. This group was organized in the 
early fall and consists of those students who are 
interested in music, singing and group partic- 
ipation. The choir's first aim was to give a 
large Christmas concert. Group practices were 
held in the chapel, and the concert itself was 
given in the Presbyterian Church. The music 
the choir sang was such that it gave the mem- 
bers opportunity to display the training and 
mastery they had aimed for. The concert, Lake 
Forest's first, was a huge success, and the group 
was lauded for their vocal abilities and ac- 
complishments. Members of this organization 
form the chapel choir which participates in the 
chapel's weekly services. Also, soloists from 
this group give special performances at these 
exercises. Ten members from the Chorus got 
together to form Lake Forest's Madrigal Club. 
This is a very interesting group for they get 
together to sing selections of the earliest type 
of part harmony. Dressed in costumes of the 
early seventeenth century, the madrigal singers 
sit around a table and reproduce the wierd 
sounds of English chants, rounds, and folk 
songs of the period. This type of recreational 
music is receiving much interest and is becom- 
ing very popular. 

MEN'S GLEE CLUB 
The men's glee club numbers twenty-four 
members. Chorus work is offered as a credited 
course as well as an extra-curricular activity. 
Men with vocal talent, as well as those who 
just like to sing, participate in this type of 
work. Mr. Thomas uses the Glee Club hour to 
practice special numbers for male voices as 
well as those selections which the mixed chorus 
performs. All members of the men's glee club 
belong to the a cappella choir, so they get 
double practice in both meetings. Many 
talented soloists have emerged from the glee 
club and their abilities at performing have been 
exhibited at many of the campus functions. 

MEN'S QUARTET 
Of these soloists come four very talented 
boys who got interested in singing together. 



97 



Thus was originated the men's quartet. Wally 
Ward sings bass, Don Koch carries the first 
tenor, J. Manning Potts, the second tenor, and 
Jack Brytsparask, baritone. The boys practice 
in their free time and give out with the regular 
"barber-shop" harmony. They are also prone to 
singing Negro spirituals and such light music 
that gives them the opportunity to let their 
voices have a spontaneous, but accomplished, 
air. You can find these four fellows entertaining 
on the various programs that fill the campus 
calendar. Their popularity is unquestioned and 
they are great in demand. 



GIRLS' GLEE CLUB 

The female of the species has great vocal 
talents too. Outside the music room you can 
hear soft, melodious voices floating on the 
breezes. The twenty-eight girls that form the 
girls glee club enjoy their recreational music, 
and the songs they sing in the practices follow 
them out to their dorms and around the cam- 
pus. This work in the glee club can be used for 
academic credit or just for activity in the 
extra-curricular sense, the same as work in the 
men's glee club. The type of music that is 
performed by the women of Lake Forest Col- 
lege runs parallel to that of the men. They get 
down to hard work on the music that is used 
for the a cappella choir, but relax occasionally 
to sing the popular and light hearted songs of 
present day music. 



GIRLS' TRIO 

Out of the girls' glee club come the girls' 
trio. In the fall of 1945 these three girls began 
their harmonizing together and have been 
doing it since . . . much to the pleasure of 
their fellow students and the faculty. Betty 
Hennessey is the soprano of the threesome, 
Sunny Chase takes the second soprano, and 
Lila Spannenberg sings alto. These girls are 
active members in Pi Alpha Chi, the honorary 
music fraternity. Besides performing at campus 
functions like chapel. Parents' Day, the formal 



Pi Alpha Chi concert, and other special events, 
these girls entertain in the town of Lake Forest 
as well as in other nearby communities. They 
can always be called on to give an excellent 
performance and their popularity and demand 
cannot be doubted. 



BAND 

This year is the first year in many that Lake 
Forest College has had a band. The band in 
former years was excellent but died out during 
the turmoil of war. Last September, Mr. Thom- 
as sent out a call for those instrumentalists 
who wanted to form the new Band. Twenty- 
four students responded and thus began Lake 
Forest's band. With lots of talent and perser- 
verance they practiced religiously, using Har- 
lan Hall as the band headquarters. The first 
time they appeared in public was at Lake 
Forest's first post-war homecoming day foot- 
ball game. They were greeted on the field with 
great enthusiasm, and the 
spirit of L.F.C. was cap- 
tured in their merry notes. 
In this group of band mem- 
bers are a number of very 
talented soloists who are 
called upon to appear at the various assembly 
programs on the campus and at the social 
functions of organizations in the town. Mr. 
Thomas' desire is to build this group up to a 
sixty-piece marching and concert band. In the 
not too distant future we hope this will be 
possible. We are looking forward to those 
football games when our band will perform in 
marching style, and to those concerts given 
by our own student group. 

Each semester the music department of our 
college grows a little more. Its ascent in the 
scheme of a liberal arts college is rapid, and so 
it should be. Everyone should have the oppor- 
tunity, and take advantage of that opportunity, 
to know more about the music they hear and 
sing. We are all supporting our music depart- 
ment, watching its rise from almost nothing- 
ness to great heights.

COMMITTEES 



COMMITTEES 



HOMECOMING 



£*^«rti5^v^5?jK**t\ 



LAYING an important part in 

Pthe social activities of our campus 
■ life have been the six committees 
■ which have organized and suc- 
' ■■'-■■^ cessfully run several large dances 
and entire campus day programs. Due to the 
efforts and initiative of the various members 
of these committees, this year has been even a 
more memorable and happy one for all the 
students of Lake Forest college. We take time 
now to give consideration to the work of these 
committees so that their efforts will not go 
unnoticed in the recording of the 1946-1947 
activities. 



November 2 — that was the big day at Lake 
Forest College this year. For the first time in 
four years we celebrated a normal Homecoming 
Day — football, fraternity and sorority floats — 
plus faculty reception, open house, bonfire, 
tea dance, and entertainment. Mr. Tomlinson 
acted as faculty advisor to a student committee 
headed by Doug Alleman. The committee 
heads under him were Sunny Chase and Al 
Swanson, publicity; Bill Westine, dinner; 
Audrey Ardies, queen arrangements; Betsy 
Schlung, decorations; Betty Laing, registra- 
tion; Daisy Morris, displays; and Russ Tom- 
linson, entertainment. Representing the alums 



99 



were Jacob Best, '33, Helen Smith Elvin '37, 
and the father of one of our freshman gals. 
Big feature of the day was the crowning of 
Queen Jane Murray, Alpha Delta Pi and the 
announcement of the float winners — the In- 
dependents for the men and Alpha Delta 
Pi for the women. 

DAD'S DAY 

With the return of men on campus, Lake 
Forest College sponsored the first revival of an 
old school tradition — the prewar celebration 
of Dad's Day. Bud Quinlan was in charge of 
the activities for the entire day which was 
composed of registration, football game with 
North Central, reception in the library, and 
entertainment by the Garrick Club which 
concluded a very successful day. The people 
who helped to make Dad's Day so successful 
were Phil Mark, Harry Kunzer, Roy Crandall, 
Ben Andresky, Paul McKenna, Loisgene 
Day, Rani Ulrich, Mary Em Yarnall, and 
Carol Sears. 

FORESTER DANCE 

The first dance of the new semester and the 
new year was "Cupid's Chance" sponsored by 
the Forester. This much publicized affair was 
semi-formal and the "Shoreliners", a 10-piece 
band, provided the music 
which made a dreamy back- 
ground with the white 
streamers and red hearts 
that decorated the Insti- 
tute. The highlight of the 
evening was reached when Mary Lou Collins 
and Mike Powers were crowned "Typical 
Girl and Boy" of Lake Forest College. Under 
the direction of Mary Em Yarnall, dance 
chairman, was the following committee: Bar- 
bara MacArthur, Mildred Tess, Lois Schlee- 
vogt, Lois Lenters, Dorothy Distelhorst, Lila 
Spannenberg, Bob Behlen, Harry Kunzer, 
Dick Rundquist, and Bill Maloney. 

FRESHMAN DANCE 

The freshman dance committee this year was 
successfully headed by Wally Johnson. Under 
his direction a very wonderful dance was 
planned for the entire campus by the freshmen. 
Stars were hung gracefully from the ceiling and 
silhouettes decorated the side windows. The 




main feature of this dance was the crowning of 
the freshman queen and Ginny Gosling had the 
honor of reigning as queen of the dance. The 
members of her court were Gwen Chadwick, 
Cecil Boyle, Harriett Grosse, and Jan Figge. 
Those freshmen class members who worked 
and cooperated with Wally on his committee 
were Joan Baumeister, Arlene Schwuchow, Jean 
Jensen, Barbara Montgomery, Jim Kelly, Tom 
Thayer, George Sweeney, and Herb Peterson. 

COLLEGE DAY 

The annual College Day program for pros- 
pective Lake Forest students is this year to be 
planned and directed by Othello Ellis as 
chairman. Since the Forester went to press 
before this day took place the exact features of 
the day cannot be given. However, the usual 
schedule will be followed — registration and 
campus tours in the morning, a game and tea 
in the afternoon and entertainment and a 
dance at night. Those people chosen to work 
with "Ace" on the events for the day are 
Norma Tess, Independent Women; Sunny 
Chase, Gamma Phi Beta; O'Ray Baxter, Chi 
Omega; Elaine Truitt, Alpha Xi Delta; Daisy 
Morris, Alpha Delta Pi; Bob Bibbs, Phi Pi 
Epsilon; Tom McEwen, Alpha Sigma Kappa; 
Jim King, Digamma Alpha Upsilon; and Dave 
Samples, Kappa Sigma. 

CHAPEL COMMITTEE 

The members of the chapel committee are 
representatives of each sorority, fraternity, 
independent men and women, plus a student 
council and Stentor staff members. They were 
ably advised by Karl A. Roth, the first se- 
mester. During the second semester Myrvin 
DeLapp took over this job. The chapel com- 
mittee meets once a week to discuss problems 
and suggestions about religious activities on 
campus. Lake Forest's annual Religious Em- 
phasis Week, the organization of special 
vespers, and the selecting of the speakers and 
hymns for each weekly chapel comprise the 
main duties and responsibilities of the com- 
mittee. Those who have served on this com- 
mittee are Lois Schleevogt, Lois Lenters, Joan 
Hamer, Wally Johnson, Ralph Osborne, Russ 
Tomlinson, Carol Wilson, Paul Lundell, Mona 
Miltenberger, and Gale Huber.

THLETICS

MEN'S ATHLETICS 




OW that the Lake Forest men 
are back on campus, men's athletics 
once more occupied their former 
important place in campus i.e., 
students watched the first football 
team for three years battle it out with other 
nearby teams. All through the year 1946-47 
college life seemed more complete and satisfy- 
ing with the football, basketball, and baseball 
conferences once more the topics of discussion 
and interest on the part of the students and 
faculty alike. We welcomed back many former 
lettermen into our major sports as well as 
receiving many new men who made themselves 
felt in Lake Forest athletics. Everyone inte- 
rested in sports received his chance for many 



exciting intramural games were played be- 
tween the fraternity and independent groups. 
We pause now to look over the record of 
1946-47 athletics at Lake Forest. 



FOOTBALL 

1946 saw the revival of varsity football at 
Lake Forest College after a three-year lay-off 
period to attend to some important business. 
53 men responded to the call of Coach 
Ralph Jones, famed mentor of Lake Forest 
College football squads. Assistant coaches 
Ken McAllister and Bob Peterson drilled the 
boys in fundamentals and in the T-formation 
(which was developed by Coach Jones). 90% 



139 



of the team were veterans. The end of the 
season saw Lake Forest in a three way tie for 
second place in the newly organized College 
Conference of Illinois. North Central was in 
first place with .875, and Lake Forest, Illinois 
Wesleyan, and Wheaton all had .750. Other 
colleges in the organization are Augustana, 
Millikin, Illinois College, Elmhurst, and Carth- 
age. 

Jerome "Mike" Powers, drivin' halfback 
from Green Bay, Wis., was elected most valu- 
able player of the 1946 season by his team- 
mates. 

LAKE FOREST 20, ELMHURST 12 

To Pete Schmit, honorary captain of the 
1946, went the honor of scoring the first 
touchdown for Lake Forest College. This 
touchdown climaxed a down the field march 
of the Jaybirds, featuring plunging by Gutnik 
and passes by Kohler. In the second quarter 
Kohler connected with three passes, and How- 
land made four first downs in five plays. Then 
Powers smashed his way to Lake Forest's 
second scoring of the game. In the third 
quarter, an enlivened Elmhurst team scored 
two touchdowns, one on a sleeper play by 
Motsurami, a 20th century Mercury. In the 
last four minutes of the game Wahler inter- 
cepted a pass, and a series of running plays by 
Howland and Wahler brought the pigskin to 
the 10 yard line. Wahler plunged thru for the 
final score of the game. 

LAKE FOREST 10, NORTH CENTRAL 7 

North Central (who eventually became 
champions of the CCI) found itself on the 
short end of a 10-7 score at the Dad's Day 
game at Lake Forest College. The game was 
made interesting by a touchdown by North 
Central in the very first minute of play. Then 
the Jaybirds took control of the ball. Plunges 
by Gutnik and Powers, passes by Kohler, and 
some running by McAllister put the Foresters 
in scoring position twice without quite making 
a score. The Powers plunged thru for a touch- 
down in the second quarter, with Wahler mak- 
ing the extra point to tie the game up at 7-7. 
Then in the third quarter, Wayne Wahler, the 



red-head from La Valle, Wisconsin, with the 
talented toe, made a field goal with a beautiful 
drop-kick from the 30-yard line. The final 
score was 10-7, with the Foresters in first place 
in the conference. 

LAKE FOREST 0, WHEATON 31 

The first game away from Farwell Field 
found the Foresters routed by Wheaton by a 
score of 31-0. The outclassed Lake Forest team 
made one first down in the game. The Jaybirds 
did have a lot of spirit though, and held the 
Crusader's to a 6-0 lead at the end of the first 
half. The Gold Coasters had lots of tough luck, 
especially thru fumbles and intercepted passes. 
Two touchdowns in the third and fourth 
quarters put Wheaton ahead 31-0. 

LAKE FOREST 0, CARROLL 34 

A crowd of 2500 attended the first Home- 
coming since 1942. The 34-0 defeat by the 
Pioneers of Carroll College didn't dampen the 
festivities though. Al Hanke, Carroll half-back, 
scored three touchdowns, the first one being a 
50 yard dash to score in the first play of the 
game. 

LAKE FOREST 0, WABASH 20 

The Jaybirds suffered its third straight defeat 
in this non-conference game. Illness kept Ray 
Genovese and Bob Stilling out of the game. 
A switch in the line-up found McAllister in the 
quarterback position, and Wahler at left half. 
The Jaybirds drove to Wabash's 4 yard line in 
the second quarter but lost the ball in a 
fumble. 

LAKE FOREST 20, MILLIKIN 

The Gold Coasters' season was climaxed by 
the 20-0 defeat of Millikin. The Jaybirds 
played really heads-up ball in this game, 
capitalizing on all mistakes of their opponents. 
The sea of mud didn't stop the terrific aerial 
attack of the Lake Foresters. The first goal 
was achieved by a pass from McAllister to 
Schmit. Wahler made the extra point to give 
L.F. a 7-0 lead. Showers complicated the last 
half, with neither team able to do anything in 



140 



the third quarter. McAllister scored the second 
touchdown in a quarterback sneak. Millikin 
took to the air to avoid a shut-out, and Bob 
Marback intercepted a pass. Bussone gained 
some more territory and then Gutnik scored 
the final touchdown. A complicated play — 
Bussone received the ball from center, lateralled 
to McAllister, who passed to Schmit who was 
all clear in the end zone — gave Lake Forest 
its final point. The final score was 20-0 in 
favor of the Foresters. 

LETTERMEN 

Bibbs, Burgett, Genovese, Forrest, Gutnik, 
Howland, Kaczmarzinski, Kohler, Marbach, 
McAllister, McCabe, Meyer, Powers, Schmit, 
Swanson, Wahler, and Greenhow (Manager) 
received major varsity letter awards for 
football in 1946. 

BASKETBALL 

1946-7 was a "building" year for Lake 
Lake Forest's basketball team. Coach Ken 
McAllister, who was ably assisted by Bob 
Peterson in coaching the Jaybirds, awarded 
varsity monograms to six freshmen. Forwards 
Merton Anderson and Earle Hodgen, centers 
Gene Ernsting and Wally Ward, and guards 
Harlan Howard and Len DeMichele received 
awards. John Kirkland received a monogram 
as manager of the team. None of these boys, 
whose average age is 20, had ever played 
collegiate basketball previously. As Paul 
LaVinn, head basketball coach at Carthage 
College, says, "If they play three more years 
together, the CCI'll never touch them." 

The end of the season found Millikin Uni- 
versity at the head of the CCI with a .900 
standing. Lake Forest College was in the cellar 
spot with .100. 

Harlan "Hi" Howard was awarded the Bill 
Emery Free Throw Trophy, which is given to 
the member of the Jaybird team who has the 
highest average for free throws in varsity 
competition. "Hi" sunk 23 in 33 attempts — an 
average of .696. 

Because no freshman can be elected captain 
of the basketball team according to the athletic 
constitution, no captain was elected this year. 



Lake Forest lost four pre-Conference games: 
Beloit 92-54; Illinois Tech 67-53; Elmhurst 
59-51 ; and Illinois Tech (return game) 72-61 . 

NORTH CENTRAL 51, LAKE FOREST 37 

Our first conference game found Lake Forest 
shaded by a smooth working North Central 
team. Their 6'8" center was the sparkplug of 
the team. Our Ward was high scorer of the 
game with 15 points to his credit. 

WHEATON 61, LAKE FOREST 47 

The superior Wheaton Crusaders defeated 
the Jaybirds 61-47. The second half of the game 
Lake Forest outscored their opponents 28-21, 
but couldn't overtake the big lead of the first 
half. DeMichele, Lake Forest guard, was high 
scorer for his team with 13 points. 

NORTH CENTRAL 64, LAKE FOREST 35 

A strong North Central quintet defeated 
Lake Forest 64-35 in our third conference 
game. Lake Forest's high scorers were Di- 
Michele and Ward with 8 and 7 tallies respec- 
tively. 

CARROLL 62, LAKE FOREST 51 

This was a rough and tough game — the 
teams were almost evenly matched. Lake 
Forest was trying for its first win, and Carroll 
was seeking its second. 47 fouls were called 
during the game. The 18-18 score in the first 
period, increased to 30-27 at the half, and then 
Carroll increased its lead steadily. Anderson 
with 17 tallies was high scorer for the Jaybirds. 
This was a non-conference game. 

ILLINOIS COLLEGE 69, LAKE FOREST 51 

Lake Forest College scored its first and only 
victory of the season when it defeated Illinois 
College 69-51. Mert Anderson was high scoring 
man of the evening with 21 points to his credit. 
The Jaybirds were never seriously checked — 
at the 56-26 point. Coach McAllister sent in an 
entire team of replacements. 

MILLIKIN 59, LAKE FOREST 38 
Lake Forest found itself on the short end of 
a 59-38 score. The Jaybirds couldn't overcome 
the 25-7 half-time lead despite the scoring 
efforts of John Katzler, mid-year student 
playing his first game for Lake Forest. Katzler 



141 



with 13 points was higli scoring man of both 
teams. Other new men, from mid-year entrants, 
including Olsen, Nicicoley,0'Meara, and Wetts, 
all exhibited great promise for future games. 

CARTHAGE 56, LAKE FOREST 48 

This was a well fought game all the way. 
Lake Forest was leading 35-33 in the last half, 
and then the Carthage boys gradually pulled 
ahead. Katzler made 19 points and took scoring 
honors for the evening. 

ILLINOIS WESLEYAN 56 

LAKE FOREST 48 

After the Jaybirds had piled up a 6-2 lead, 
the Illinois Wesleyan team forged out in front 
and stayed there the rest of the game. Howard 
was out because of a hand injury, and Ernsting 
got five fouls early in the game, so Lake 
Forest lacked height on defense. Katzler again 
paced the Foresters with sixteen points. 

WHEATON 46, LAKE FOREST 31 

Lake Forest bowed to a taller Wheaton 
College quintet 46-31. Anderson tallied up 9 
points to become top scorer for the Jaybirds. 
Katzler was out because of injuries sustained 
in the Wesleyan game. 

CARROLL 64, LAKE FOREST 47 

In a return non-conference game with Carroll 
College, the Foresters found themselves on the 
short end of a 64-47 score. Hodgens' 15 points 
topped the individual scores of the local cagers. 

ELMHURST 44, LAKE FOREST 42 

A closely fought battle for cellar position of 
the CCI found the Gold Coasters shaded 44-42 
by Elmhurst. The score see-sawed back and 
forth, with the Foresters leading 22-21 at half 
time. In the second half Elmhurst got up steam 
and outscored our boys. DeMichele and Hod- 
gen picked up 11 and 10 tallies respectively for 
the Jaybirds. 



AUGUSTANA 58, LAKE FOREST 32 

The final game of the year for Lake Forest 
College was with Augustana, whose team 
averaged 6'3 in height. Despite spectacular 
rebounding and 11 tallied by Anderson, the 
Foresters found themselves on the wrong end of 
a 58-32 score. 



BASEBALL 

1947 promises to be a banner year for Lake 
Forest College in the realm of baseball. 60 men 
came out for baseball at the beginning of the 
season, including 12 returning lettermen. 



TENNIS AND GOLF 

Head tennis coach is Dr. Bruce Lineburg, 
who is also President of the College Conference 
of Illinois. He will be assisted by Dr. Arthur 
Voss, who was Kansas State tennis champ 
while attending Kansas University. Golf will 
be coached by Dr. E. O. North. Men will have 
an opportunity to earn a major varsity letter 
for these sports this year. 



INTRAMURALS 

Lake Forest College had a strong intramural 
program this year, with a large number of 
men participating. The Intramural Board did a 
fine job of organization and supervision of the 
various events. 

In Football, the Phipes took first honors, 
with the Digams, Kappa Sigs, IMC's, and 
Alpha Sigs following in that order. First and 
second teams were listed as follows:

WOMEN 




ROM the first days of school in the 
fall until school is out in the spring, 
one can see signs of bustling activity 
amongst L.F.'s coeds. With 
racquet in hand they fill all the 
courts of the newly improved green cement 
courts, which have replaced the old clay courts 
or they can be seen wielding a golf club on the 
"green" of L.F.'s own six-hole golf course, or 
they can be found shooting for baskets, or 
spiking a ball across a net. 

The coeds of our present classes, who today 
are dressed in their trim white shirts and shorts 
are a great contrast to the coeds of a generation 
ago, who wore white middy shirts, black ties, 
bloomers, and stockings; yet the athletes of 
both these eras engage in similar activity. 

Although Miss Calmer early this year broke 
her arm and was handicapped considerably, 
she was assisted in her work by Emalou Bishop 
and activities went on as usual. 

The various sports taught in class are given 
seasonally at the same time as the various 
sports are played in W.A.A. intramurals. In 
this way some of the gym classes count towards 
the "hard-to-get" practices necessary for 
participating in a W.A.A. sport. 

Lake Forest athletics include also, not only 
the various "stars" of the team, but also those 
who do not care to play. These girls may par- 
ticipate by helping in scoring, refereeing and 
timekeeping. Altogether our round of activities 
this year has included almost every girl al- 
though some were only part of an able cheering 
section. 

"Do you have your practices in" — the cur- 
rent by-word of all Lake Forest coeds who are 
desperately trying to sandwich in such intra- 
mural activity as hockey, volleyball, basket- 
ball, and baseball into their already full 
schedule of activity. 

The Women's Athletic Association is virtu- 
ally a beehive of activity with such a variety of 
sports to keep L.F.'s coeds busy. O'Ray 
Baxter, president of the Women's Athletic 
Association; Gary Flood, vice-president; Sunny 
Chase, secretary; and Gloria Dran, treasurer; 
compose the executive board along with the 
heads of the various sports. The board plans 



activities and handles the official business of 
W.A.A. The heads of the various intramural 
activities are Bee Morris, hockey; Elaine 
Truitt, volleyball; Emalou Bishop, basketball; 
Carol Wilson, baseball; and Lois Schleevogt, 
and Lucille Bischoff, individual sports, which 
include ping pong, bowling, badminton, tennis, 
and golf. 

W.A.A. was organized at Lake Forest in 
1920, and its purpose was to provide organized 
seasonal sports activity and training in de- 
veloping sportsmanship. 

Each year W.A.A. sponsors a number of 
activities, many of them traditional such as 
the annual banquet given with W.S.G.A. in 
May. This banquet was first given in 1930 and 
has been a tradition ever since. At this banquet 
new officers of the two organizations for the 
next year are announced and W.A.A. awards 
given. A cup is given to the best all-around 
junior athlete and individual cups are given to 
the two senior girls having the greatest number 
of W.A.A. points. 

The second annual "All-School Talent Show" 
held in December was one of the activities 
sponsored by W.A.A. Margaret Flood and 
Emalou Bishop were the chairmen, while the 
show was conducted by the memorable trio of 
comedians — Tom Linnell, Doug Alleman, and 
Bill Westine — who kept the audience enter- 
tained. Some of the acts were a duet sung by 
Frannie Proctor and Betty McCarthy, a 
"make believe" little boy-girl act, featuring 
Carol Wilson, Barbara Coss, Mary Smith, Sue 
Kastler, and Carolyn Scandroli. The Kappa 
Sigs and Gamma Phis also put on some 
original skits. 

Each year W.A.A. holds two initiation 
ceremonies for new members. One is held soon 
after the first semester, and the other is in the 
form of a breakfast held at the beach. 

Hockey, headed by Bee Morris, was the first 
intramural activity of the year. After complet- 
ing the required five practices, four teams were 
organized. While most sports are organized by 
sororities, because of the nature of hockey, the 
teams were picked at random from the girls 
turning out. Generally, the weather was very 
nice and the tournament was finally completed, 

143 



being won by Carol Wilson's team, although 
the last few games were played in semi- 
darkness and a slightly frigid atmosphere. 
Most of the teams seemed to have a variety of 
luck, but Carol Wilson's team took the tourna- 
ment by winning all its games. Members of 
team IV are Barbara Mitchell, Phyllis Gallup, 
Dorothy Truman, Barbara Hahn, Barbara 
Keine, Sara Jane Irwin, Catole Reinier, and 
Louise Sanborn. 

An all-star team was organized and these 
girls played several games against Ferry Hall. 
The teams were fast and furious, but L.F.'s 
team was beaten. Following the games, the 
Ferry Hall girls invited the team for a snack or 
"Coke" and doughnuts, which provided con- 
solation for the defeat. The following girls 
were on the team: Jean Pearce, Carol Wilson, 
Dorcas Brausch, Louise Sandborn, Ruth 
Wilder, Arlene Goodhart, Marguerite Tyler, 
Dorothy Truman, Virginia Gosling, Marion 
Kirkwood, Sara Jane Irwin, Barbara Kriech, 
Jean Jensen, Barbara Keine, Barbara Hahn, 
and Bee Morris. 

Volleyball, the second major sport, headed 
by Elaine Truitt, started right after our return 
from Christmas vacation. This sport is organ- 
ized according to sorority and independent 
groups and consequently many of the games 
were steeped with traditional rivalry and were 
very exciting. 

Several of the games ended by only a differ- 
ence of a few points, and the first round ended 
with a three-way tie between the Alpha Xi 
Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, and Chi Omega 
sororities, each having won three and lost one 
game. This complication necessitated con- 
tinuation of the first round, so that each team 
would be matched twice against the same 
team. When all games had been played, the 
Chi Omegas emerged victorious after a hard 
struggle and claimed the cup for another year. 

An interesting sidelight of the volleyball 
season were two games with the fellows. In one 
game Gamma Phi Betas played the Phipes, and 
in the second game an "all-star" girls team 
played an "all-star" boys team. The girls lost 
both games, but not without putting up a good 
hard fight. 

Basketball practices started in February 



right after we had recovered from first semester 
finals. This sport, headed by Emalou Bishop, is 
also made up of sorority teams. The games were 
fast and furious, many of them ending by only 
a difference of a few points, but Miss Calmer, 
with her able umpires, was able to keep the 
teams on the floor. 

The Gamma Phi's came out on top after the 
first round since they won all their games. The 
second round presented a slightly different 
picture when the independent women staged a 
winning comeback and gave the Gamma Phis a 
good fight. The top game of the season was the 
Gamma Phi-Chi Omega game which ended 
with an 8-8 split after a hard struggle on the 
part of both teams. The Gamma Phis won the 
tournament having lost only one game. 

The last major sport of the year — baseball — 
and spring seemed to arrive at the same time. 
April found the girls out for practices in front 
of the various dorms racing to get the ball be- 
fore Angus — the toy terrier — could. Since the 
season just started as the Forester went to press, 
here's hoping that it will be completed without 
most of the games being rained out as has 
happened in years past. 

A large group of girls supported the indi- 
vidual sports section, headed by Lois Schlee- 
vogt. A ping pong tournament was played off 
in December. Florence Baruffi and Selma 
Blumenkrantz came out victorious over a host 
of table tennis enthusiasts, and the tournament 
was finally won by Selma. 

Four bowling teams were organized and each 
Friday at four-thirty, the girls would assemble 
for a session with the "ten-pins". Betsy 
Schlung, Joan Hitchcock, and Micky Cardy 
were individual high scorers. 

A badminton tournament was also played 
off in April along with tennis tournaments 
which completed W.A.A.'s 1946-1947 busy 
season of activity. The season was a very busy 
one, too. We all had lots of fun — even those 
who only sat on the sidelines and cheered on 
their respective teams. We look back over our 
year of athletic activities and say thanks for all 
the fun and excitement — the rivalry and the 
thrill of winning — thanks for making another 
college year a very happy and complete one!

STUDENT LIFE 




ROM the beginning of one year 
to its final end, student life plays 
an increasingly important part 
on Lake Forest campus. Here we 
renew it in its entirety. 
It was September. The wind which already 
carried the feeling of winter in its strength 
whipped the leaves into a froth. A chain of 
cars moved endlessly into the drives, and the 
freshmen, eager with expectancy, stepped into 
the mysterious whirl of the college daze. Life 
at L.F.C. had begun again. 

The wind became stronger, and winter 
moved in to cloak the campus in white finery, 
but sometimes it almost seemed as though 
spring had broken forth in December. The 
freshmen weren't quite so eager by this time; 
they were becoming seasoned to the grind, and 



once more Lake Forest was a stream of student 
life which swept forward. 

The rains came, so did the robins, the flowers, 
the green leaves, and the gorgeous blue sky, 
filled with fluffy clouds by day and brilliant 
stars at night. Spring fever descended con- 
tagiously upon the campus. The beach was 
more enticing than ever; finals loomed like 
storm clouds ahead; the freshmen strutted with 
the pride of battle scarred veterans. Once more 
the world began to whisper that college was 
drawing to a close and that summer was at 
hand. 

This is but the surface of a year at L.F.C; 
scratch that surface and a panorama of student 
life is revealed. This life is like a grab bag, filled 
with parties, sports, fraternities, and fun; 
yet seasoned with heartaches and disappoint- 



163 



ments. The bag is opened; the skeleton of 
student life for 46-47 at Lake Forest appears. 

The opening weeks of school saw the Greeks 
once more dominating the L.F.C. scene with 
their rush parties. This year both fellows and 
girls hoped to win the "cream of freshman 
crop". 

The sororities entertained first and came up 
with every type of party from the South Sea 
Islands to "Heaven" sprinkled with entertain- 
ment which ranged from fortune tellers to 
"Flora Dora Babies". When rush week came 
to a close, there were fifty-eight coeds wearing 
brand new pledge pins. The fraternities fol- 
lowed suit with the first pledging since male 
life has once more returned to the campus in 
force. As cheering coeds formed double lines 
from College Hall to the fraternity houses, 
the actives and their new pledges walked 
through by groups singing their well known 
songs in deep, booming voices. College Hall 
bell rang out with new vigor as the 117 pledges 
marched proudly down the path. This cere- 
mony was followed by serenades and gift 
exchanges between sorority and fraternity 
groups. 

These first weeks included a series of ac- 
tivities which started the college year well on 
its way. The Student Center, with Bill Westine 
as chairman, held the first dance of the season. 
Johnnie Ohlin's orchestra provided the music, 
and with L.F.C. 's manpower out in force, the 
rafters of the Institute fairly burst. 

The following Friday "Ace" Ellis and his 
crew buried Elmhurst properly at the first 
pep rally of the season. The following day, to 
the joy of all Lake Foresters, the football 
team buried them too! 

The Pan-Hell Open House and the W.A.A. 
Party followed, and by the time that Dad's 
Day came around, October 19th, the school 
was really showing signs of "That Old Lake 
Forest Spirit". 

Dad's Day saw the re-birth of an old 
tradition, and with Bud Quinlan in charge, the 
day was proclaimed a success by mothers as 
well as dads! One of the day's highlights was 
the introduction of the fathers of the team 
members at the half of the L.F.C. North 
Central game. The fact that Lake Forest 
handed out defeat to North Central was 
another addition to the day. That night Lake 



Forest talent made its first appearance of the 
year. The trio composed of Sunny Chase, 
Betty Hennessey, and Lila Spannenberg re- 
ceived enthusiastic approval from the Dad's 
Day audience; Bob Weber, Emalou Bishop, 
and Nancy Wilson could take a bow, too, for 
their share in the entertainment. By the time 
the day ended the fathers had caught some of 
that Lake Forest spirit, and pictures of their 
own college days were vivid in their minds. 

Garrick once more sponsored its lecture series 
of notables. It brought to Lake Forest such 
well known figures as Paul Lydgate, H. R. 
Knickerbocker, Dr. Will Durant, and others. 
Garrick also put on as usual some of its fine 
productions. The first, "Angel Street", was 
presented on October 30-31. The leads were 
played by Dave Samples and Judy Mitchell, 
and with a fine supporting cast it was a success. 

Lake Forest seemed to be getting in the 
dance mood. The Chi O's and Kappa Sigs 
revived an old tradition by holding a sweet- 
heart dance. The A.S.K.'s had the first pledge 
dance of the season on October 26th. It set the 
stage for the series of pledge dances which soon 
followed. 

The joy of Lake Foresters withered as red 
cards appeared all over the campus. It was like 
throwing cold water in the faces of the frolick- 
ing freshmen who found there were other 
things to do besides spending their time at the 
coflFee shop and down at the Lake. However, 
everyone decided they had to take the "bitter 
with the better" and resigned themselves to 
their fate and their books! 

Red cards were forgotten, studies were 
forgotten, dates were forgotten (?), as every 
Lake Forester turned his thoughts to Home- 
coming. This favorite of favorite traditions 
spelled only one thing to the enterprising 
Greeks and Independents — floats! The A.D. 
Pi's were already combing the campus for tin 
foil; the Phipes talked in bigger terms discuss- 
ing the probability of procuring a pink elephant 
for the occasion. The Chi O's surrounded by 
mountains of crepe paper decided that rosette 
making should be included in every pledge 
lesson! The Independent groups banned to- 
gether and were noticeably quiet about the 
whole affair. In preparation for the Home- 
coming Dance, five Lake Forest princesses 
were nominated; one of whom was destined to 



164 



become queen. The candidates were Betty 
Laing, Barb Prindle, Anne Shumaker, Jane 
Murray, and Marilyn Arentz. Judging was 
done by the masculine members of the campus. 
During the week leading up to Homecoming 
blaring signs were seen all over L.F.C. as well 
as every type of ballyhoo possible to attract 
attention to candidates, but the whole campus 
seemed to enjoy the affair. The Friday before 
Homecoming "Ace" Ellis and his gang held a 
sensational pep rally around the freshman 
bonfire. There was much singing and cheering, 
and the rally was concluded with a snake dance 
which caught most of the campus in its wake. 
Saturday morning Jane Murray was pro- 
claimed Homecoming Queen. This news was 
greeted by cheers the campus over, but even 
the A.D. Pi's couldn't celebrate too long as the 
floats had to be finished by noon. The vision of 
the gorgeous float cups enticed the Lake 
Foresters and spurred them to action. 

The day was one the campus will long re- 
member. The floats as they made their way 
down to the square were greeted by throngs on 
the curbs or were followed by students packed 
six deep in cars. The floats looked like a crepe 
paper fantasy and were enthusiastically re- 
ceived, particularly by the students sporting 
blistered hands and weary looks — the ones who 
had built them! With Carroll "Cooked", 
"Carved", "Crowned", and "Frozen", the 
Lake Foresters were ready to trample their 
opponents; Carroll unfortunately was def- 
initely not in the mood! 

The dampened spirits of the L.F.C.'s foot- 
ball supporters revived after the defeat in time 
for a bang up Homecoming dinner, entertain- 
ment, and dance. At the dance everyone waited 
breathlessly the announcement of the float 
winners and the crowning of the new queen. 
Finally the moment came and Queen Murray 
and her court ascended to the throne. 
Then it was announced! The Independents 
had taken top honors for the men and the 
A.D. Pi's had made it a double header by 
winning the coveted float trophy. Rivalry 
melted away when Jane, probably at that 
moment the happiest girl in the world, received 
the cup for her sorority. The dance broke up as 
various groups retired to do their own celebrat- 



ing. A topic which had caused much discussion 
in every group on campus, the '46 Homecom- 
ing came to a successful close. 

November 7th Lake Forest entertained 
Richard Widmark, one of her famous alums, 
at a tea in Lois Hall Lounge with Garrick 
members doing the honors. Mr. Widmark, at 
the time playing the lead in the production 
"Dream Girl", is well-known for his stage and 
radio work. 

Saturday the scholars once more emerged 
from their cells for the Student Center Barn 
Dance. The guys and gals put on their most 
ragged clothes and had a wonderful time for 
themselves doing square dances and Virginia 
reels. 

November 15th was the date for the beginn- 
ing of the pledge dance series which kept the 
campus buzzing for weeks before and after the 
big events. On Friday the Kappa Sigs started 
off with their dinner dance which was held at 
the Deerpath and later at the Kappa Sig house. 
Saturday both the Gamma Phi's and Alpha 
Xi's did their entertaining at the Edgewater, 
The following Saturday found the Chi O's and 
A.D. Pi's celebrating at the same time and same 
place with an equal amount of excitement and 
fun. Everyone had a gay time at all aff^airs, and 
the pledges were properly introduced into the 
college whirl!! 

On campus things were happening, too. The 
Junior Class became organized with Roy 
Crandall at its head. The Independents were 
also becoming strongly organized with a fine 
program slated for the future. The Greeks 
welcomed their rivals and were glad to see the 
Independents becoming strong and gaining 
deserved recognition. 

The annual Thanksgiving Evensong spon- 
sored by S.C.A. was held November 26th. The 
candlelight, organ music, and the peace which 
seemed to prevail were a welcome change from 
the hustle and bustle of college life. Jean Hale 
headed the program with Carol Wilson reading 
the scriptures and Ken Warren presented the 
meditation. 

On Wednesday, November 27th, Lake 
Foresters with much enthusiasm packed their 
grips and headed home for Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. The few days of loafing and eating ended; 
red cards once more were passed out, and to the 



165 



returning vacationers L.F.C. settled down to 
the seemingly long weeks before Christmas. 

The W.A.A. Talent Show took place on 
December 7th. This year's crowd tripled 
previous records. Everyone enjoyed the "Star 
Studded" revue with L.F.C. 's three M.C.'s in 
charge: Westine, Alleman, and Linnel. Other 
features were Bob Weber, Red Maloney, Al- 
dona Krask; racoon coats sported by Emalou 
Bishop, Bill Westine, Tom Linnel, and Terry 
Elmore, and many others who displayed with 
vigor their college spirit. Congratulations go to 
Gary Flood and Emalou Bishop who were 
chairmen of this show. 

Saturday Jo Paskins was announced the 
lucky winner of the "Dream Date" which was 
sponsored by the Independents. With Paul 
Yorkston as her escort, she had a night to 
remember starting with flaming sword dinners 
at the Pump Room and ending with cham- 
pagne at the Villa, plus tickets to the prize 
winning play "State of the Union" and a 
Packard chaufFered car! The "green-eyed" 
losers hoped for another chance next year. 

The Saturday before Christmas vacation, 
December 14, the Foresters held their White 
Christmas Formal at the Moraine Hotel. The 
fellows took their tuxes and tails from moth 
balls, and all the girls thought their dates 
looked mighty handsome. Surprise of the 
evening was the announcement of Lou Collins' 
engagement to Gale Huber. After the dance 
the parties did their merry making at nearly 
every place along Skokie. 

The Christmas spirit by this time had com- 
pletely taken over Lake Forest. The books got 
slightly dusty as the fellows dreamed of the 
big times ahead, and the gals, being more 
practical, worked like beavers to finish argyle 
socks and sweaters they were knitting for 
Christmas presents. 

The annual Christmas program was pre- 
sented by the choir the Thursday before 
vacation. With the new chorus which was 
organized by Mr. Thomas performing, the 
students and faculty as well as visiting fathers 
and mothers proclaimed it as a highly pro- 
fessional job. 

The long dreamed of vacation started on 
Saturday, December 21, and once more Lake 



Forest lay silent as her students spread them- 
selves to many parts of the United States and 
Canada to celebrate Christmas. 

On the night of January 5th, the dorms, once 
more warm, bright and cheerful, became alive 
as in poured streams of returning students 
filled with enthusiasm which only two weeks of 
mother's home cooking can inspire! Everyone 
was anxious to tell all the exciting happenings, 
and more than one girl looked slightly wistful 
thinking of the boy she left behind. Gradually 
the students realized Christmas was over, and 
the grind was to begin again. They went back 
to work reluctantly with their heads still in the 
clouds. 

It was a new year — 1947. The old routine and 
tradition began again, and Lake Forest started 
its ninetieth college year. 

The freshman production "Junior Miss" 
opened the January activities officially. The 
second Garrick play was completely different 
from its hair-raising predecessor "Angel 
Street," as it turned out to be one of the out- 
standing comedies ever produced at Lake 
Forest. Nancy Wilson turned in a professional 
job in the leading role along with Sally Kint, 
her rowdy gum-chewing companion. Jean 
Jensen with her heavy Swedish accent por- 
trayed a typical comic maid, and Keith 
Rasmussen, Ginny Gosling, Phyllis Gallup, 
and others in the cast provided two hours of 
enjoyable entertainment. The production staff, 
also under direction of underclassmen, made 
the older campus members sit up and take 
notice of one of the finest Garrick offerings. 

Social activities nearly came to a complete 
stop as the students dusted off their books and 
got ready for finals. The last week in January 
was set aside as the zero hour, and worried 
freshmen and upperclassmen alike began to 
wonder where all those days and weeks since 
September had gone. The Coffee Shop crowd 
thinned out and the remainder was mainly 
composed of those who either didn't need to 
study or for whom it was too late to begin; the 
rest of the campus at least went through the 
motions. The Freshmen finished their exams 
the middle of the week; by Saturday the last 
blue books were turned in, and the few days of 



166 



semester vacation began, so that students could 
rest their fatigued brains. 

Tuesday was the beginning of the second 
semester, and the Lake Foresters armed with 
resolutions and books began classes again. 
There were 95 new students added to the en- 
rollment, including quite a few returning 
veterans. 

Saturday, February 8th, was the date set for 
the big Forester Dance. The students had been 
in a whirl about it several weeks before, since it 
would disclose the winner of the Typical Boy 
and Girl Contest. The campus had been 
covered as usual by banners and posters, but 
this time, sororities and fraternities turned out 
some secret weapons which made for a sensa- 
tional, close, and exciting campaign. Good 
looking candid pictures of both Bill Westine, 
the Phi Pi candidate, and Gordy Perkins, the 
Kappa Sig candidate, covered the bulletin 
boards, but Mike Powers and the Digams 
serenaded the girls' dorms and won much 
enthusiastic support. The sororities announced 
their candidates with eye-catching banners 
and signs of electric lights. The A. D. Pi's were 
seen all over campus wearing pictures of their 
candidate, Judy Harvey. The Chi O's resorted 
to air taking and had a plane drop leaflets for 
Tudie Kastler. Voting was done the Monday 
of finals, and the secret was well guarded until 
the "Cupid's Chance" party of the 8th; then 
beneath soft lights and to the strain of sweet 
music, Lou Collins, Gamma Phi, and Mike 
Powers, Digam, were crowned "The Typical 
Boy and Girl of Lake Forest. The dance itself 
was one of the season's best; it was semi- 
formal, and the music was provided by "The 
Shoreliners". Hearts and crepe paper streamers 
were woven into beautiful decorations for 
which the campus owed a vote of thanks to 
Mary Em Yarnell, the dance chairman, who 
did a marvelous job. 

The first week in February second semester 
fraternity rushing began. The Kappa Sigs held 
the first informal get-to-gether. That Saturday 
and Sunday were open rushing periods, but 
on Monday the "smokers" started again. The 
Alpha Sigs brought the rush season to a close on 
Tuesday; then on Friday new fraternity 
members were pledged. 



The freshman girls did not look forward 
eagerly to Valentine's Day because it marked 
the beginning of courtesy week, a pre-initiation 
tradition which is 100% more horrible in the 
imaginative minds of the pledges than the 
actual weekend. On Friday night actives and 
pledges all gathered in Lois Hall and the fun 
(?) began. Most of it was composed of various 
forms of entertainment ranging from the 
sublime to the ridiculous. All pledges were in 
bed by eleven o'clock complying with Pan 
Hellenic rules, but unfortunately there were 
none set for the actives who stayed up for 
hours, smoking, talking, and playing bridge. 
Saturday afternoon all sororities had a scav- 
enger hunt for their pledges who brought in 
everything imaginable including bird nests. 
That evening Gamma Phi pledges put on a very 
realistic circus. Chi Omega actives surprised 
their future actives with a spread, entertain- 
ment, and group singing. The A.D. Pi pledges 
were treated to a movie and spread Saturday 
evening after cleaning the suite thoroughly 
that afternoon. Sunday forty-four pledges were 
initiated and celebrations were held at the 
Deerpath and Moraine Hotels. Courtesy Week 
was fun but old and new actives alike were 
exhausted. 

On Wednesday, February 19th, the first all- 
student music recital was presented before 
students, faculty members, and townspeople. 
It was such a success that Mr. Thomas an- 
nounced plans to make it a monthly event. 
Also as director of the college A Cappella 
Choir, he began work with his new group which 
was composed of 52 selected students who were 
able to pass the difficult tryouts. 

Thursday, February 20th, was the date of 
the Digamma 40th anniversary banquet which 
was held at the Swedish Club in Chicago. It 
included a novel initiation ceremony which 
activated new members and re-initiated "old 
timers". The entertainment was provided by 
Bob Weber, Maurice Hestermann, and Ed 
Fischer with other impromptu acts, all of 
which added up to a memorable night for the 
Digams. 

Sorority attention that week was centered on 
second semester rushing. There were no actual 
rush parties, but merely open house in the four 



167 



sorority suites. Friday afternoon was set aside 
for the pledging ceremonies, and on Saturday 
there were twelve new girls proudly displaying 
their new pledge pins. 

Besides the fraternity and sorority doings, 
other campus activities were in the limelight. 
The Student Center Committee was busy 
making plans; the first of which was the in- 
formal dance they sponsored March 1 in the 
Institute. Bob Norwood and his orchestra 
supplied the music. They also presented the 
idea of having informal juke-box dances in the 
Institute on Wednesday evenings as well as 
coffee shop quizzes. During the months of 
February and March the college "Brains" were 
battling it out in the Student Center Quiz 
sections on Wednesday afternoons. While 
worried girls shook their heads and looked 
baffled, the fellows cooly answered the ques- 
tions and came out ahead in every contest. 

The Red Cross Drive with Margaret Morris 
as chairman started its annual campaign on 
February 27th. The committee did a fine job of 
reaching every member on campus and it 
turned out to be one of the most successful in 
campus history. 

On February 28th W.A.A. held a skating 
party at the Waukegan Roller Skating Rink. 
It included the entire school as well as members 
of the association and provided an evening of 
different and enjoyable entertainment. 

On this same date the Lake Forest Speech 
Squad went to Carbondale and took the 
greatest number of honors that the active 
group had gained all season. The record was 
remarkable, for they succeeded in winning all 
debates and placed first in six of the individual 
divisions. This was a fine addition to their 
already impressive record. Jean Hale won 
third place in the state contest for her work in 
the extemporaneous speech division, and Russ 
Tomlinson reached the finals for oratory. The 
1946-47 achievements brightened the future 
of the Lake Forest Speech Squad and plans for 
the next semester are in the making. 

March 1 the Phi Pi Epsilon Fraternity held 
its initiation dinner at the Chateau Du Jour. 
Forty couples attended and had a grand time. 
There were excellent refreshments for every- 
one and the music furnished by the orchestra 



was perfect for dancing. The party was 
chaperoned by the Johnsons and the Hantkes. 

The freshmen and the sophomores under the 
capable direction of Jo Paskins took over the 
Stentor for the March 5th edition. The under- 
classmen dived into their work with enthusiasm 
and though there were many difficulties to 
overcome, the results were well worth the 
effort. 

Student Religion and Life Week opened the 
5th of March. Mr. James Hines from the Mc- 
Kinley Foundation at Champaign, Illinois, was 
the speaker for the chapel services held Wed- 
nesday and Thursday in the Presbyterian 
Church. Other events of the week included 
informal discussion groups which met in Lois 
Hall Lounge, watch services held each morning 
in the chapel at 6:45 under the direction of 
Sunny Chase, and personal meditation sheets 
written by members of the student body. The 
closing service was held Friday evening with 
Jean Hale in charge of the program. Ken 
Warren, chairman of the S.R.L.W. committee 
stated the purpose of the week to be "an 
opportunity for every student to make the 
Lenten season mean more through a better 
understanding of religion". 

The Student Christian Association during 
the year was also an active group in making 
religion a more important factor in the stu- 
dents' lives. Nearly every Sunday evening 
throughout the year, group meetings were held 
at the First Presbyterian Church. 

On March 9th, the class of 1950 presented 
the traditional Freshman Dance which turned 
out to be one of the most outstanding informal 
dances of the season. The highlight of the 
evening was the crowning of the freshman 
queen. The voting for the contenders had been 
so close that the crowd waited anxiously for 
the announcement. Even the future queen and 
her court did not know the winner as they 
walked slowly up the white carpet to the 
throne. Then, after what seemed an eternity, 
Jim Kelly announced pretty Ginny Gosling, 
Chi Omega candidate, Freshman Queen of 
1947. The sweet music, the gorgeous decora- 
tions, and the lovely queen, indicated a perfect 
ending for the dance and a wonderful beginning 
for the class of 1950.
